I threw this together using what I had on hand. The "gravy" was delicious eaten by itself, and could be used as a "sloppy joe" type sandwich, or over pasta, rice, or my favorite, mashed potatoes. My toddler practically licked the bowl clean, as did my BF. On a side note, these measurements and directions are not exact. Feel free to substitute and adjust away! I also guessed on the time. It took me a little longer to make, only because I kept thinking of different things to add. So time is approximate!
