Sloppy Joes

I've made this periodically for my family--it's one of our favorite dinner nights. We love these Sloppy Joes, and really, the ingredients are all pretty much right here at home.

1 lb. ground beef
dry minced onion

1 1/2 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp. vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. prepared mustard
3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1. Brown your beef with a few shakes of minced onion (optional). Drain beef.

2. In a small sauce pan, combine remaining ingredients. Add more vinegar or brown sugar to get the taste and tangy-ness you desire. If you like your Joes real sloppy, add more of each ingredient. Let ingredients stew for 5-10 minutes.

3. Combine sauce with the beef. Serve on your favorite bun or roll.

*We love our Sloppy Joes with steamed broccoli. You can do chips, or any of your favorite veggies.
