BBQ Corned Beef Sandwiches (aka Sloppy Joes)

It may seem strange to add corned beef to this, however it adds such an interesting taste to this mix. The texture of the corned beef is similar to the hamburger when cooked. You honestly don’t realize it is in there, but it sure is missed if this is made without it. My mother used to make this meal for me and my brother. She kept the corned beef ingredient secret from us. I didn’t realize this was the “secret ingredient” until I was grown and asked for the recipe to make for my own family. You can decrease the amount of chili powder if your stomach is sensitive to this ingredient.

BBQ Corned Beef Sandwiches

1 pound hamburger

1 small onion, chopped

1 can corned beef

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 cup catsup

1 cup water

2 tablespoons brown sugar

Brown ground beef and onion in skillet. Drain off excess fat. Add the remaining ingredients. Simmer until thick. Serve on buns.

Yield: approx 10 sandwiches

I usually serve this with chips and veggies or fruit for a quick meal. This recipe is easy to make into a double or triple batch and divide up into freezer containers. Just remember to take it out of the freezer in the morning to allow it to thaw. I usually reheat in the microwave.
