When you are in a hurry and need to throw something together for the family, this is an awesome (and cheaper) alternative to the boxed "hamburger helper".
1 pound ground beef (browned)
2-3/4 cups boiling water
1/3 cup Ketchup
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 cups macaroni noodles (not cooked)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon Steak Sauce
3/4 pound Velveeta cheese (or 1 to 2 cups shredded Velveeta cheese depending on your own taste)
Mix browned ground beef, boiling water, ketchup, onion powder, salt, pepper, steak sauce, and macaroni noodles together in a deep skillet. Cook on low to medium heat for 10 minutes or until noodles are done (stir often). Remove from heat and add cheese. Cover for 5 minutes until cheese has melted.
Serve and enjoy
