This is a recipe from my childhood. I got this recipe from my mom early in our marriage. It is one of my favorite meals. I make a scratch sauce to mix in with the meat. It is best served with French fries or tator tots.
Melt 2 TBS of margarine in a small pot
Add onion powder (I never measured, I think 2 tsp.)
Add ½ cup water
1/3 cup vinegar
1 cup ketchup
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbs brown sugar
Brown 1 lb. ground beef; drain and return to pan
Pour sauce over meat until saturated. (You will have leftover sauce)
Cover pan and simmer for 45mins – 1 hour. Check and stir every 15 minutes.
