Alot of similar recipes, but didn't find one exactly like this so I thought I would post. Brown sugar makes these extra sweet. This recipe is made every year at my neice's birthday parties. I got it from her mom. :)
- 1 lb ground chuck
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar (or more, to taste)
- 3⁄4 cup catsup
- 1⁄8 teaspoon vinegar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon dry mustard or 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- onion (to taste)
- green pepper (to taste, personally I don't care for them)
- Brown & drain meat.
- Put back in skillet and add rest of ingredients; heat through & serve! (Serve on buns, put on salad greens, or even on nachos!).
I thought this recipe was great! Except they were a little sweet. I recommend adding only 1 1/2 Tablespoons of brown sugar.
I added garlic powder while browning the meat and onion. I wanted the onions softened. I omitted the salt and green peppers, used No Salt Added Ketchup, 1/4 teaspoon apple wine vinegar and added 1/8 teaspoon dill. I added a small amount of water and cooked it out in order to blend the flavors and make it a bit saucy because I thought the ketchup and all was not enough to hold the meat together. I may have had a bit more than a pound of ground meat though. It was a bit too sweet for my taste so next time I will use 2 T. of brown sugar. Not enough zip so may add a little cayenne. Thanks for posting this MissJennifer.
