Add oil or fat of choice to a saute pan on medium heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes, or until the onions have softened.
Add the garlic and the spices, stir for a minute, then add the ground beef.
Once the ground beef is mostly browned, stir in the tomato sauce, apple cider vinegar, molasses yellow mustard, and water.
Simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce thickens.
