Homemade Sloppy Joe Mix

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 5 minutes

Cooking Time – 10 minutes to bubble with cooked meat

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika (regular paprika works too!)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • MIX WITH…
  • 1 lb.  ground beef
  • 15 oz. can tomato sauce, plus 1/2 cans worth of water
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp cider vinegar (regular distilled vinegar works too!)

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, minced onion, ground cumin, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  • Brown the ground beef, then stir in the tomato sauce plus about 1/2 cans worth of water (more if you plan on simmering it a long time), the mustard and cider vinegar. Add in the spices mixture and stir into the sauce. Let simmer for 5-10 minutes, giving time for the flavors and spices to infuse into the sauce.
  • Serve Sloppy Joes on buns (or over rice) with favorite side dishes.

Yep sounds like mom's. I'd like it better without adding all the veggies but then it wouldn't be a sloppy joe. :)
