Ground beef with a distinctive kick. My mother's recipe and a staple when we were groung up on a budget. Great over egg noodles or rice,or just eaten like sloppy joe's or a basic chili. Enjoy.

I did less salt and pepper because I used garlic salt and ended up adding more sweet barbecue sauce to the mixture since I was serving on buns as a Sloppy Joe. Used 80/20 ground beef like recommended but I prefer ground turkey so may make with ground turkey next time.
