BBQ Joes and Menu Plan Monday



I have another recipe from my new favorite cookbook.  This one is a keeper, but all of the ones we've tried from this book are new favorites in our house!  I think the cookbook is just a keeper.  Easy, low clean-up, fresh and fast.  


BBQ Joes
1 tbsp canola oil or butter
1 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, diced (or more if you're in my kitchen, I used 4)
1 lb ground beef (I used ground turkey)
1 jar BBQ sauce (I always try to find one that doesn’t have high fructose corn syrup)
Hamburger buns (I made these, our family’s favorite)
Heat oil in the pan.  When oil is heated, add onion and garlic.  Cook until softened.
Add ground meat to the pan and heat until cooked through.  Add BBQ sauce and continue to cook until sauce is heated all the way through.  
Serve on hamburger buns.   We had caesar salad with homemade dressing and homemade croutons a side dish.
