Easy Sloppy Joes

Photo credit: Oxmoor House

We love Sloppy Joes in our house! It is one meal I know my 5-year-old will clean his plate for. I adapted this recipe from MyRecipes.com for our tastes and we like to add a slice of cheese to ours as well.

1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 c green bell pepper, chopped
1 c ketchup
2 TBSP worcestershire sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cook beef, onion, and bell pepper together until meat is no longer pink. You will not need to add any water if you don't drain your meat...the vegetables provide a good amount of water. Add ketchup, worcestershire and salt and pepper. Simmer covered on low for 15-20 minutes. Serve with buns or over a baked potato. You can double this recipe and freeze some for another night's dinner and also make during the day and keep warm in a slow cooker so dinner is ready when you are....enjoy!
