EatingWell Sloppy Joes

October/November 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (94 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! "

This was great! My kids gobbled it up and my son asked for seconds. I felt really good feeding this to them, since it was loaded with veggies. They liked them the second day even better. The only thing we didn't like was the apple cider vinegar. We all agreed that should be left out. That would also make is less sloppy (we like our joes to be fairly thick!) Great recipe!

Yummy nostalgia food, and easy to make. Slightly sweet and tangy, with a touch of heat from the chili sauce (we used Maggi SOS Cili Chili Sauce). Since we made it in winter, we used (Muir Glen) canned plum tomatoes instead of fresh. The following day, we had the leftovers on pasta instead of buns. Try it!
