  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/8 cup mustard
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 onion diced


  • Cook the ground beef or turkey (I buy whichever is on sale at the time) + onions, drain some of the juices off, and then add the mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar. 
  •  Mix well and taste. Add more ketchup or mustard if you like.
  • Allow to simmer a bit to soak up all the juices and mixture so it's nice and yummy!
  • Put on buns and serve.
