1 lb ground beef
1 can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp Ketchup
2 tsp Mustard
A few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp Brown Sugar
tsp Season Salt (to start)
tsp Garlic Powder (to start)
Sprinkle of Pepper (to start)
8 Hamburger buns (or rolls, depending on what you like your sloppy joes on)

Cook ground beef over medium-high heat until cooked through. Drain. Add tomato sauce, ketchup,
mustard, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, season salt, garlic powder, and s & p. Let simmer until
sauce has reduced a little and cooked into the meat (just a few minutes). Slop onto some buns and
enjoy! Ive also eaten it over baked potatoes when I was too lazy for chili.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe was tough to write down because I always just make it by eye and taste-testing, so feel free
to tweak it to your taste. All of the above measurements (besides the meat and tomato sauce) are
estimates. I even asked my mother to help me write out amounts. She laughed at me.
