makes 8 to 10 sliders

1 1/2 lb 80% lean ground beef
1/2 large sweet onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 to 1 tsp ground chipotle chile pepper
1 Tbsp Worcestershire
1 cup ketchup
1 {7.5-oz} can co-cola
1 cup water
1 tsp dry mustard

Brown the beef in a large non-stick or 10-inch cast iron skillet
over medium-high heat for about 8 to 10 minutes.
Drain the beef, reserving 1 tsp of the drippings.

Sauté the onion in the drippings over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
Add the garlic & sauté for 1 minute.
Return the beef to the skillet & stir in the salt & chipotle chile pepper.
Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until the seasoning coats the beef well.

Stir in the Worcestershire, the ketchup, the co-cola, the water & the dry mustard.
Simmer, stirring on occasion over low-ish heat
until the mixture thickens, about 20 to 25 minutes.

the sauce is wild & will spatter out of the pan as it cooks…

to tame
cock a lid over the pan as it simmers down
remember to stir the mixture every now & again

you really want the sauce to tighten up
you’re looking for about 3 Tbsp to remain

How To Have A Family-Friendly Weeknight Tailgate

Sometimes tailgating is huddling up around the television
during the week for some family fun.

You can make it special for the kids & easy on yourself.
Create instant memories with a few helpful tips.

The Mild Side

Reduce the chipotle chile pepper to 1/2 tsp
or remove it entirely & substitute 2 tsp chili powder.

It’s A Wrap
… Taco Tuesday gone awry

Fill a flour tortilla with the seasoned beef, top with cole slaw
queso fresco, matchstick carrots, & fresh cilantro.

The Sidelines

Offer kid-friendly favorites such as carrot sticks & broccoli
with Ranch-style dressing for dipping.

Cooking the spices with the beef for a minute or two
before adding the remaining saucy ingredients cuts the raw flavor.
