Nina's Saucy Beef Sandwiches

Mustard Fields

Nina, my mother’s friend, could make Sloppy Joes to perfection. The sizzling sound of ground beef cooking in the electric frying pan and the scent of onions and ketchup drifting down the hallways where she lived, was enough to call children to dinner without a word. Mustard, used since Roman times, adds an essential spicy flavor to these sandwiches. Yellow mustard, prepared from mustard seeds, actually obtains its color from turmeric. Mustard plants can be seen blooming in the fields of Norwich, England in June.
Nina now lives in Europe.

    1 pound lean ground beef
    1/2 cup chopped yellow onion

    1 teaspoon mustard powder
