Sloppy Joes

A classic...but one I've never tried making without a can before. The result--yummy comfort food :) As a shortcut, make sure to cook your ground beef as soon as you get it home from the store and freeze it in Ziploc bags. It makes the prep time so much quicker.

What's Needed:
1 to 1.5 lb. ground beef, cooked
1 medium onion, chopped
Handful of garlic powder
1 1/4 C. ketchup
1 C. frozen bell pepper strips, chopped
1/3 C. water
3 T. brown sugar
3 T. vinegar
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
Hamburger buns for serving

1. Cook onion and garlic until the onions are transparent.
2. In the crockpot combine ketchup, bell pepper, water, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce. Stir in meat and onion mixture.
3. Cover; Cook--LOW 6-8 hours; HIGH 3-4 hours. Serve on hamburger buns and a salad.

Husband Rating A- (He said it needed a bit of a kick)

PointsPlus 7 points (with bun)
