Your rating: None Average: 4 (91 votes)

Our updated Sloppy Joe takes lean ground beef and adds chopped cremini mushrooms and diced fresh plum tomatoes, all in a zesty sauce. Served on a whole-wheat bun, it's a hearty dinner sandwich that will please adults and kids alike.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This is so good! Instead of the ketchup/chili sauce I used tomato puree, added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, a liberal sprinkling of chili powder, a dash of cayenne, and just a bit of honey. Looking forward to the leftovers! "

Really delicious! I used canned diced tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes (about 2 heaping TBSP per plum tomato), and left out the mushrooms. I bet you could sneak a lot of other stuff into this recipe. I think spinach would be good! Great leftovers too.

DEFINATELY leave out the vinegar. it was way too overpowering. But add a little bbq sauce on the bun and it's great!

I was really excited to make this recipe. I bought fresh mushrooms, tomatoes and ... that's what I got. Tomatoes and mushrooms. In ketchup. Even though I substituted tomato puree for ketchup. Do the people that love this recipe ever cook? Not to put anyone down, because I tried this because I work 10-12 hour days and am looking for QUALITY recipes that are not junk. This was not it
