Sloppy Joes

Every time I talk or even think about sloppy joes I think of Adam Sandler singing the Lunchlady Land song.  But don't let that stop you from making these!  This is an America's Test Kitchen recipe, so you know it's good.  And it's super fast--20 minutes from start to finish, and that includes chopping the onion.  Yum!

Sloppy Joes

1 T oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 lb ground beef
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp brown sugar
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup ketchup
1 dash Tabasco sauce
6 sandwich buns

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and stir-fry until softened and lightly browned, about 2 minutes.  Add the garlic and chili powder and cook about 30 seconds.  Turn heat to medium and add the ground beef, salt, and pepper.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat has browned, about 3 minutes.  Add the tomatoes, ketchup, and Tabasco sauce, stirring well to combine.  Let simmer for about 4 minutes, until thickened slightly.  Put 1/2 cup of the meat sauce onto each bun.  Serve hot.
Serves 6.
