Easy and kid-friendly recipe that I always have ingredients on hand to make. I use onion powder in place of diced onion to ensure the kids will eat them, but feel free to use diced onions instead. Serve on hamburger buns with a side salad and dinner is ready!

  2. Mix all other ingredients together and stir into browned beef.
  3. Simmer for about 20 minutes.

We enjoyed this sweet and simple recipe for sloppy joes. I cut it in half since I only had 1/2 lb of beef and left out the sugar. The one thing I would add is some salt for our tastes. Made for PAC Fall 2012.
