EatingWell Sloppy Joes

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

Your rating: None Average: 4 (110 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.

"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! "

Easy, yummy, healthy!

Love this! I cut the recipe in half since we didn't need a full batch. I only used a 1/8 of a cup of vinegar since I only made half and much and it wasn't to strong at all. Also used 2 tbs of tomato paste and 2 tbs sugar free honey instead of ketchup to lower the sodium. also added in chili powder and minced garlic. I think next time I'll add in some chopped green peppers.

easy meal

I LOVE these sloppy joes,.almost as easy as the can. I use ground turkey and double the chili sauce and ketchup for our liking....

Good start

This was a really good weeknight meal when time is short but the vinegar flavor was way too strong. Next time I will try it with 1/2 as much vinegar. It's also missing something but I'm not sure what yet.

Fast, easy
Very delicious quick meal

This was a very delicious quick meal. I'll make this again. My 7 yr old ate 3 sloppy joes!!! It's safe to say she really likes it!!

A Definite Keeper!

Fabulous Sloppy Joes!!
