Meat and Buns

Meat and Buns

For the single ladies: recipe for a rousing success.

(originally appeared in CORE Dallas Magazine)

Did your last romantic dinner leave you cold? After planning down to the smallest detail, did you end up alone under the covers with only your peekapoo to keep you warm?

I have a question for you: Did the aforementioned dinner involve micro greens? reduction sauce? napkin rings? Be honest - did you put in a Norah Jones CD?

Repeat after me: Meat. Buns. Consider your target audience; it's just that simple. Tonight I guarantee a rousing success.

Hot Sloppy Joes

2 lbs. Ground beef (10% fat)

2 cups ketchup

2 1/2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp white vinegar

1 tbsp yellow (plain) mustard

1 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tbsp chili powder

splash of beer

salt to taste

Brown meat in a large skillet or saucepan. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Simmer over lowest heat for 15 minutes and serve on white hamburger buns with plenty of beer on the side. Please, no napkins.
