In by noon or your money back!

Today is Tasty Thursday! Trista over at The Pumkin Patch is the host of Tasty Thursday, head on over to her blog to see more tasty recipes.
I made these last week and they were a hit. I used ground turkey and ketchup. This makes a nice sweet and sour type sandwich. Everyone agrees I can make it again!Taverns

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.

Crockpot: I browned the ground meat, onions and garlic and mixed the remaining items together in the pot. Combine and heat on low 4-6 hours.
