Recipe of the week -- Sloppy Joes

No offense to you convenience cooks, but sloppy joes out of a can are not that appetizing. Homemade sloppy joes can be made just as quickly, require few ingredients and just taste better.

Sloppy Joes are my go-to meal, especially in the summer. They go with anything and are so easy.

I was feeling rather summery with the 70* weather we've been enjoying so I cooked up some of these last night. We enjoyed them with baked beans and baby carrots.

Sloppy Joes

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 cup ketchup or chili sauce
1 tbls. yellow mustard
1 tbls. brown sugar
1 tbls. apple cider vinegar
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan, brown beef and onion until beef is no longer pink.

Add remaining ingredients. Cover pan; simmer on low for 1/2 hour.

Can it get any easier than this?? These also work really well in the crockpot. Fix them up in the morning and by dinner you have sloppy joes with little work.
