Sloppy Joe’s for a Sloppy Monday

By Geekmom

Don’t die of heart failure!  I am posting again.  This is for the robotics designer engineering type person who ate this last Monday and liked it – you know who you are.  A deluge of rain dropped out of the sky today and turned everything into a sloppy mix of snow and wet.  Unfortunately, it is not an edible mess like this recipe.

Sloppy Joes

*Saute 1/4 c. chopped green pepper and 1/4 c. chopped onion in a little vegetable oil or good olive oil. (Teaspoon or so of oil and I just put in a little onion powder because of my miserable allergy)

*Add 1 t. Dried oregano

*Crumble in 2 lb. ground beef and brown. (Drain off fat)

* Stir in the following:
1 c. ketchup
1 c. tomato sauce
1/2 c. water (if too thick – which by the way never usually ends up in it when I make it)
4 T. red wine vinegar
2 T. Worchestershire sauce
2 T. brown sugar
2 t. salt
black pepper to taste

*Cook until thickened.

*Add tabasco sauce to taste and serve.
