Sloppy Joes!!

This is modified from the Uncle Ben's version; I didn't use the rice. I tried it with rice and it was good, but we felt like putting rice on a bun was a little overkill in the carb category. The sauce was tasty, though.

We served it with leftover potato salad and veggies from the graduation party. No cake for dessert; it's all gone!

Sloppy Joes

1 pound ground beef
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup onion, diced
1/4 cup green pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup ketchup
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcerstershire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/4 cup water (if needed)

hamburger buns (I like whole wheat buns best)

1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat and add the ground beef. Stir to separate the meat and then add the onions, peppers, garlic, salt, and pepper. Continue cooking until the meat is cooked and the onions are translucent - about 5 minutes.
2. In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, vinegar, and 1/4 cup water.
3. Drain meat. Add liquid ingredients to meat in skillet and stir well. Continue to simmer for about 5 minutes to meld the flavors.
4. Serve on whole wheat buns.

Mmmm: a simple staple, done well.
