Cook and drain ground beef (I use regular ground beef, drain and rinse very well, this will make it as lean as the 93% lean beef), stir in ketchup, sugar (or splenda), mustard, and garlic salt/powder. Simmer on low for 10 - 15 minutes.
This can be made ahead and froze. It can also be kept warm on low in a crockpot.

Surely the 1/2 - 1 cup sugar is a typo. I hope.
Editor's Note: That is the way it was sent in but it must be in error. I changed it to 1/2 - 1 Tbsp.
I am not sure what you thought was a error, the ketchup maybe? I don't think so. Sloppy Joes are very tomato based! I think this sounds yummy and much better than the canned stuff! The only thing I might add would be some onion with the hamburger.
