1 pound lean ground beef

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/2 yellow onion chopped

1/2 green bell pepper chopped

1 clove garlic minced

2 teaspoons yellow mustard

3/4 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


Note: click on times in the instructions to start a kitchen timer while cooking.

Add the ground beef to a large skillet (this browns very well) on high heat and brown until a deep brown crust appears before breaking the beef apart.

Stir the ground beef and brown until a deep crust appears on about 50 or so percent of the beef, and it is cooked through, then remove the beef, drain the fat and add the butter, onions and bell pepper to the pan.

Let brown for 1 -2 minutesbefore stirring, then let brown for another 1-2 minutes before stirring again and add the beef back into the pan.

Add the garlic, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, to the pan and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated (about 75% of the mixture is above liquid), 3-5 minutes

Served on hamburger buns with cheese or mix the cheese into the sloppy joe meat mixture.
