Sloppy Joes

Just a quick post. My girls have been discussing sloppy joes. I've been working on mine for a while and they're still not perfect (when is anything I make perfect?) but I figured I'd throw them out here for them to take a shot.

Jacqueline's Sloppy Joes

1 1/2 lbs ground meat (I use ground beef)
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 small can diced tomatoes
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon black pepper

either:
1 tablespoon tamari plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice plus a dash of cardamom
OR
2 tablespoons Worcestershire

and either:
1 1/2 cups ketchup
OR
1 batch ketchup replacer

Brown and drain the ground meat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until tender. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve over rice, bread, biscuits, buns or however you usually eat sloppy joes. :)
