Sloppy Joe's

I think nearly everyone grew up on Sloppy Joe's. We weren't any different. The only weird thing I've noticed is that all Sloppy Joe's taste completely different. I love my mom's recipe because's what I grew up on. I love Mom's Sloppy Joe's, when I try others I am always sorely disappointed.

Mom's Sloppy Joe's

1 lb. hamburger
1 onion
1 T. mustard
1 Cup ketchup
3/4 tsp. salt
2 T. Vinegar
1/4 tsp cloves

Brown and drain meat and onion. Combine other ingredients. Cover and simmer 10-15 minutes (may need to add more ketchup).

I always make extra because they are also great for leftovers with no complaints from the boys. We used to eat them with potato chips, but I can't bring myself to do that anymore with all the fat in the meat anyway...oh wait we aren't supposed to talk about fat on this blog. I served it with fresh asparagus cooked in a good quality olive oil and sprinkled with salt and freshly ground pepper.

Yum! I love this recipe. It's one of our favorites too. I think the secret's in the cloves. We like to have it with fresh fruit.

It's my favorite. Especially when cloves have been blessed at a Shiva tempo. The cloves should be cut back a little bit in the recipe for most people though is what I've found at work.
