Recipe Category: Beef
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
1 pound ground beef, or equal amount of shredded
beef or pork
1/2 - 3/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs. white vinegar
1 Tbs. prepared mustard
8 oz tomato sauce OR ketchup
1/4 cup orange juice
Brown the ground beef, onion, and garlic in skillet until cooked.
Drain the grease from the skillet. Add remaining ingredients to meat
mixture and simmer until heated through. If you use tomato sauce you
will want to let it simmer for at least 30 minutes or it will taste
"tomato-ey". If you're in a hurry, use ketchup. If this is too thick
you can add a bit of water, or more juice, ketchup, or some honey. A
dash of soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce is good too. Ladle on
hamburger buns. Although not traditional, you can also serve over
bread, rice, or noodles, depending on what you happen to have around.
Serves 6 polite people or 2 teenage boys.
