Sloppy Joe Sandwich

3 oz. lean ground beef*

1 tbsp. chopped fresh or frozen onion

1 tbsp. ketchup

½ tsp. mustard

1/8 tsp. chili powder

½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce

½ tsp. salt

dash of black pepper

Place beef in 1½-pint Menu-ette**. Break up beef with fork. Cook 1 minute (_____) at 100% power. Beef will still be pink; mix well with fork until pink color is gone. Add onion, condiments, and spices to Menu-ette. Mix well with rubber spatula. Cover Menu-ette with paper towel. Cook 1 minute (_____) at 100% power. Set aside.

1 unsliced hamburger roll

Slice off top portion of roll and set aside. Press down inside of roll with a small spoon to form a hollow. Fill hollow with meat filling and cover with sliced-off crust.

*Unless top-quality ground beef is used, grease will ooze out of the meat filling into roll. Pour off grease or absorb it with paper towel before putting filling into roll.

NOTE: Cooking times are for a 700-watt oven. For best results with this and any other microwave recipe, please be sure to go to the Timing Section of Microwaving Tips for a complete explanation of timing in the microwave.
