Mom's Sloppy Joe's

This is my Mom's Sloppy Joe recipe.  It is a favorite at family Birthday parties.  I love that it is a little sweeter than canned sloppy Joe Sauce.  This homemade version is way better than any canned sloppy joe's.

Another plus is it is prepared in 1 pan.  Just brown the hamburger, mix up the sauce in a large mixing cup then pour over the drained hamburger.  Simmer for about 15 minutes and it is ready.

This makes for a fast and easy supper which was great for days like today when I have to work in the office.  I also know what I will be having for lunch tomorrow as this is awesome warmed up as left overs.  I actually think it is better the 2nd and 3rd day.  

Sloppy Joe's

1 to 1 1/2 pounds hamburger, browned and drained

1 C ketchup
1/4 C water
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 t onion powder
1 t Worcestershire sauce
1 t vinegar

Mix all together in a measuring cup or small mixing bowl.

Brown 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of hamburger in a skillet, drain.  Pour the sloppy joe sauce over the hamburger and return to the stove over med/low heat for about 15 minutes stirring occasional so it does not burn.
