Sloppy Joes Sandwiches

One of my favorite quick meals, goes with anything!!!
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Water**
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons prepare mustard
  • 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • hamburger buns
  • **For a more tangier taste, I use some vinegar instead of water; but not the whole 1/4 cups worth
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the ketchup, water, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes. Serve on buns.
