I have three teenagers, 14, 15 and 16 and a husband of 18 years. I had already prepared 1.75 pounds of ground beef cooked with an onion and had it previously frozen, waiting for a quick week night dinner. I simply sauted 1 garlic clove (instead of the powder) with 1/2 C green bell pepper (again, previously chopped and frozen, waiting for me.) in 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil. Once these were sufficiently cooked, I added my pre-cooked ground beef. Once warmed, I added 1 cup Ketchup, 3 teaspoons brown sugar and about a 2 teaspoons of mustard, since I had increased the amount of ground beef. My girls HATE canned & envelope Sloppy Joes mixes. They've never liked Sloppy Joes because of those prepared mixes and my husband joined them in their dislike. Tonight, they fell in love with Sloppy Joes! I haven't heard the end about how great this was! I served it with homemade Mac & Cheese and a pea salad. Week night dinner made easy! Thanks Tamara for a recipe that my family finally agrees on and likes! AWESOME!!!
