1 lb ground turkey or lean ground beef
3/4 c. ketchup
2 T. brown sugar
1.5 T. mustard
1 T. apple cider vinegar
1 T. worcestershire sauce
Chop onion and assemble ingredients. Brown ground turkey/beef in a large frying pan. Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix well. Serve on hamburger bun or whatever you would like.
The recipe is a little skimpy on instructions, but I would assume that everyone knows to cook the ground beef first and drain it before adding the other ingredients. I followed the recipe except I doubled it and added 1 extra tablespoon of brown sugar and I used Dijon mustard rather than plain yellow mustard. Also, I already had the hamburger cooked so I just pulled a batch from the freezer and defrosted it. It had already been cooked using onion so I just added about one more 1/2 cup of onion to the mix rather than a whole onion.
After browning the ground beef, add all the other ingredients to the pan and stir until they're well combined. I cooked it for about 10 minutes on medium heat then about another 10 minutes on low to make sure the flavors all had time to blend. If you don't let it cook long enough, you'll end up with a more tangy flavor than you might like.
We ate them with a side salad and chips. Rather I had them with Kettle Kurls. Love me some of that super puffed, cheese flavored, too many calories, yummyness!
Everyone agreed that this was definitely our new go to sloppy joe recipe from now on! No more eat and bathroom runs with Manwich or bland tasting soup blends for us! Woohoo!
