Ingredients1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar (I use light)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
6 hamburger buns
Optional - slices of cheese
Optional - salt and pepper, to taste
Add the green pepper, onions, and ground beef to a skillet. Brown the meat over medium heat, and drain off the liquids.
Return the skillet to the stove, and turn the heat to low. Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, brown sugar, ketchup, and barbecue sauce, and mix thoroughly. Let it simmer on the low heat for 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper, to taste if you want. Scoop up the sloppy joe mix onto hamburger buns and add a slice of cheese, if desired.
