Dad Did Dinner - Again: Sloppy Joes

I gave Zac the reins in the kitchen again - this time he whipped up a batch of Sloppy Joes! Generally speaking I'm a Manwich girl (they just know what they're doing, right!!?) but he wanted to make up a pan from scratch. And you know I'm not gonna stop him if he wants to go for it! this is what he made:

You'll need:

Tomato sauce, tomato paste, ground beef, onion, green bell pepper, red wine vinegar, Tabasco sauce, chili powder, brown sugar & Worcestershire sauce.

First you're gonna get your pan heated over medium. Drizzle in the oil & add the onions & peppers. Sweat the veggies for about 2 minutes then add in the meat.

Once the meat has cooked through add the remaining ingredients.

Simmer for about 10 minutes to let the flavors all come together.

And, because I forgot to take a picture of it all dished up on a bun, today's "ta da" picture is just a close up of the slop in the pan!! LOL

It's great! i think I'm still a Manwich girl at my core but anytime Hubby says he wants to cook these up I will certainly not turn him down!! I hope you try them & like them!
