Sloppy Joes

Sloppy, sloppy Joes- What's not to love about them.  One of the most popular recipes of the 20th century.  Rich meaty sauce with a just a hint of tangyness.  They're a classic.  At our house we eat them classic-style, slopped on a bun or open-faced, piled high on a piece of crusty French bread.  Either way, they're sure to please.
Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup diced onion
1 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
2 teaspoons Chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Brown ground beef and onion until meat is no longer pink.  Drain fat.  Add the remaining ingredients.  Stir well and let simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.

Notes:  This recipe is also good with 1/4 cup diced bell pepper.  Add it along with the onion while you're browning the meat.

 In a large skillet
 brown ground beef with diced onion until meat is no longer pink; drain fat.
I also like to rinse my meat with hot water to remove all the grease.
 To the browned meat add 1 cup ketchup
 1/2 cup water
 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
 2 teaspoons chili powder
 1 teaspoon salt
 and 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
 Stir together well and let simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.
