An American Classic...
2 pounds ground beef
2 onions, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard, optional
3 tablespoons Worchestire sauce
2 teaspoons red or white wine vinegar
1 4 ounce can of tomato paste
1 8 ounce can of tomato sauce OR 1 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes
Brown beef over medium-high, adding chopped onions, minced garlic, salt, and pepper as the beef cooks. Cook for ten minutes, or until beef is fully cooked. Add chili powder, dry mustard, ketchup, and dijon mustard. Stir well. Add remaining ingredients, and simmer for 10 to 20 minutes before serving. Serves 8.
This mixture is well-suited for slowcooking (the longer, the better!), if you'd like to prepare in the meal in advance, and for freezing, should you have any leftover.
