April's StoryIt took a long time for me to come up with this recipe. It tastes just like the ones they made in school. Onions and green peppers, and lots of other ingredients that make this burger so special. After having this, you will never have sloppy joe from the can again, and the ingredients are things you probably have in your kitchen most of the time!!
2 1/2 Tbsp
1 1/2 large
green bell pepper, minced
brown sugar, firmly packed
1In large pot, add uncooked ground beef and cook on med heat until almost browned (still has pink here and there.)
2Add onions, green peppers and garlic and cook till fully browned. Drain and return to pot.
3Add tomato paste, ketsup, honey mustard, brown sugar, and molasses. mix well.
4Add water until the meat is almost fully covered. Reduce heat to med-low, cover, stirring occasionally, for about 1 hour or until all the water has evaporated.
5Serve on a nice soft toasted bun. Once you have these you wont be able to get enough!! Enjoy :)

The kids loved this, especially the oldest ones. They ate till there was none left...that means 3 or 4 sandwiches a piece. They never made anything close to this where I went to school!
