Lin's Sloppy Joes

Back when I started this food blog, Lin told me she made good sloppy joes, but these are melt-in-your-mouth sloppy joes! She served them for lunch today when I went over to paint with her. She is spoiling me. Thanks, Lin!

Lin uses her Grandmother's recipe and then cooks them in a crockpot for a 2-3 hours for extremely tender, rich sloppy joes.

Here's how she does it.

Lin's Sloppy Joes

2 lb. ground beef
1 c. catsup
1/2 c. water
2 T. sugar
2 T. mustard
2 T. cider vinegar
2 t. Worcestershire Sauce
2 T. butter
1 cup chopped onion

In a large skillet, melt the butter, add 1 cup chopped onions and cook until transparent. Add the meat to the onions and brown. Drain grease. Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour over the meat. Mix together, and cook for 1/2 hour. Then, move the sloppy joe mix to a crock pot for 2-3 more hours.

Yum! Reminds me of my childhood.
