Loose Meat Sandwiches

Here's a yummy sandwich recipe created due to a disappointing forecast.  Having planned to grill burgers, I had to practice some flexibility when it was suddenly 40 degrees and raining.  Oh, spring in Indiana!  On the plus side, I came up with this delicious loose meat sandwich recipe that's easy, family-friendly, and only requires a few ingredients.  Here's how Mama makes it:

Loose Meat Sandwiches

- 1 lb. ground beef
- 2 t. salt
- 1 onion, chopped fine
- 2 T. mustard
- 2 T. cider vinegar
- 1 T. brown sugar
- water, to cover (about 1 c.)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- buns, mustard, pickles for serving

1.  Brown hamburger, in a skillet over medium high heat.  Sprinkle with salt while cooking, and use a wooden spoon to break apart the beef into small crumbles.

2.  Add chopped onion and cook additional 2-3 minutes until onion is translucent.  Drain the fat, and return meat mixture to skillet.

3.  Add mustard, vinegar, brown sugar, and enough water to just cover the meat.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes until water is cooked out.

4.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Heat buns and serve with additional mustard, dill pickles, or ketchup.
