After turning to Ree Drummond and About.com for inspiration, I created my own recipe.
Well, not exactly.
I DID create my own recipe; however, I created it based on what my poor college self had in my poor college cupboards.
It's not all the time I cook for everyone, but when I do, I enjoy it. I never knew where I found this love of cooking and baking. But whenever I visit home, my mom always asks me "What's for dinner?" when I definitely remember that I was the one who always asked this. Just some food for thought. HA.
|Only 2.5 lbs of our lovely ground beef...|
Now to the beef: I've been slowly using the beef to cook for my roommates and I but one can only eat so many burgers...
Yes, I know, "Sloppy Joe's" are a form of burger, but I was lazy and didn't feel like slaving all day to peel potatoes, fry bacon, and grate cheese for potato, bacon, and cheese soup like I did once.
Heat up a medium/large skillet on medium. Throw the garlic into the skillet and swish it around to cook. Before the garlic starts to brown, throw in all the beef. Cover and let sit for about 7 minutes. The meat should begin to brown on its face-up side. Mix the beef around in the skillet, trying to get the pink side down and cover and let sit for about 3 more minutes or until fully browned.
Throw it in your CROCKPOT.
|This flavor is an easy way out if you don't have tomato paste or onion.|
|Gebhardt is by far my FAVORITE Chili Powder!|
|Can't go wrong with all those additives and processed ingredients!|
Throw in the rest of the ingredients! I suggest the ketchup and sauce first and then the spices. You can add however much more salt and pepper as you’d like.
Step 3--> Cook lazily on LOW for about 4-6 hours.
Serve lazily on delicious off-brand hamburger buns :)
HOW LAZY IS THIS?
|In case you were wondering, it didn't taste like pasta sauce at all!|
Until next time, where I'll be lazily making some sort of breakfast concoction...in my CROCKPOT!
