This is a very, very old family recipe handed down from Great Grandma C. Back then Grandma called it her Barbeque Ground Beef recipe. Today, we call it her Sloppy Joe recipe. And, the sloppy joe ingredients make a low-cost meal.
You might wonder what this recipe is doing in a garden recipe collection. Actually, it has nothing to do with garden recipes. However, we include it as an opportunity to give grandma recognition for another great meal she used to make.
