Sloppy Joes
serves 4

1 Tb butter
1 lb grass fed ground beef
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1-2 to 1 Tb sucanat (whole cane sugar) depending on taste
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp dry mustard
sprinkle of red pepper flakes
1 Tb worcestershire sauce, or to taste
1 Tb tomato paste

Brown beef in the butter. Add onion & garlic in the last few mins of browning & season with salt and pepper. Drain fat if necessary. In a measuring cup place water, ketchup, sucanat, chili powder, mustard, paste & worcestershire. Stir well & add to meat mixture. Simmer for about 10 – 15 mins.
Serve on buns that have been buttered & browned. We like to sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese on top.
