What's Cookin' -- Sloppy Joes (even better)

I was planning on making sloppy joes the other night and when I went into the pantry to get the tomato soup I found none. Guess my stock pile is gone. I bought so many tomato soups and cream soups in the spring that I just now and running out. I looked at the browned beef in the skillet and thought about making something else. Then I looked at the thawed buns on the counter and realized I better just come up with an alternative. I knew there was a recipe out there with ketchup, but I've never liked anyone else's recipe with ketchup before. After a quick Google search I came across this recipe. Normally, I read the reviews and make some conclusion on making the recipe the best it can be, but there wasn't any time. The recipe is adapted from here.

Sloppy Joes (alternate version)
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped finely
1/2 to 1/4 cup yellow onion
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp mustard
3/4 cup ketchup (I used 1/2 cup and then added a little more)
3 tsp brown sugar

1. Brown meat with green pepper and onion. Drain.
2. Mix remaining ingredients with browned meat. Keep on medium-low until heated through.
3. This can sit on low for half hour to get flavors mixed well.
