I made these SJ's today on the stove, could be made on a grill.
Much better than the canned sauce. A good base for add ins, like onion, peppers, etc.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/8 cup brown sugar
  • 1/8 cup mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • hamburger buns


  • Brown the ground beef in a skillet.
  • Once browned, drain.
  • Add in brown sugar, mustard, and ketchup. Stir to combine.
  • Allow it to simmer on low for about 5 minutes to combine the flavors.
  • Serve on buns and with your favorite sides.

Looks good. I do something similar but sub Heinz Chili Sauce for the ketchup.
Add a few splashes of worshey sauce and a little beef stock.
Slice of cheese on mine with potato chips.:)

Thanks for sharing, guys. This looks like a great alternative to canned sauces, and we usually have these ingredients in the pantry. Well, not the beef.
