I posted a great story to go with this recipe in my original post for Juicy Burgers. It tells where this recipe came from and how long I've been making it.
My husband and kids DON'T like Manwich. (However, I do.. and I actually found a great replica for Manwich which I posted here.)
Juicy Burgers are different than Manwich. Of course there are similarities. Both are made with ground beef, sauce, and buns. But, Juicy Burger are sweeter. They are made with a little brown sugar. I love both of these meals! It's a great way to stretch a little bit of ground beef and leftovers are WONDERFUL!
I made mine last night with some mac & cheese. My husband prefers something like Oven Baked Cheesy Fries. I love it all!
I am reposting this recipe .. because I took a picture... and because it bears repeating! This is a delcious meal!
Here's how I make Homemade Juicy Burgers AT HOME MY WAY:
- 1 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1 (8oz) can tomato sauce (not spaghetti sauce)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar (I don't pack mine)
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 1/4 cup water
- Salt/Pepper as you like
Brown the ground beef in a skillet. Drain. Add remaining ingredients and stir, simmer about 15-20 minutes until thick and bubbly. Serve on buns, sandwich bread, or whatever you like. Toast the buns for an extra treat.
*I scoop leftovers on flour tortillas, individually wrap, and place in the freezer in a gallon ziploc bag for terrific lunches on the go.
