Sloppy Joes

I grew up eating sloppy joes, but out of the can. That Manwich stuff. I didn't really care for it. I wanted to create a sloppy joe mix that doesn't use any can stuff, as much homemade stuff as you can.

This is what I came up with:

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 tsp yellow mustard, dried
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup Barbecue sauce (homemade is best, but bottled is okay)
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp tomato paste
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup water

1. Cook green pepper and onion until onion is translucent. Add garlic and cook a couple of minutes. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Drain fat.

2. Add ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and water. Cook until thickened, about 10 minutes or so. Add salt and pepper to taste.

3. Put mixture on a bun and enjoy. I like to use onion rolls.
