Units Scale
  1. 1 pound Chop Meat
  2. 2 Tablespoons Butter
  3. 2 Garlic Cloves
  4. 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  5. 1 Teaspoon Salt
  6. 1 Teaspoon Pepper
  7. 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  8. 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  9. 1 cup Tomato Sauce
  10. Package of 8 Hamber Buns


  1. Brown the meat and remove draining the grease.
  2. Melt butter with sliced garlic and add the meat back into the pan.
  3. Add Brown Sugar and stir.
  4. Add tomato sauce and cook over medium heat string continuously to incorporate flavors.
  5. Add Spices


If you want to do this meal the right way, be sure to include Tater tots on the side.

Adding onion and green peppers might give it a little crunch, which would be the two things I would not object to adding. I wouldn’t add ketchup or other spices like chili powder or crushed red pepper. The key to this recipe is the tomato sauce with brown sugar to give it that sweet flavor.
