How to Make Sloppy Joes Sauce

This recipe has the sauce mixed right in with the beef so, there is really no specific process for making it separate. However, if you want to make the sauce and store separately, you can.

Simply saute down the onions and garlic, then mix in all ingredients except the ground meat. Stir over medium heat for 3-4 minutes and then set aside to cool and pour into a jar to store. This recipe for the sauce is good for 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
