EatingWell Sloppy Joes

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

Your rating: None Average: 4 (108 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! "

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

We like this recipe so much that it's become a standard. It's fast and it makes great leftovers. We only use about two tbsp of vinegar. I snuck in carrots once. They were already cooked so I smushed them up and added them in and no one was any wiser. My pals at work have asked for this recipe because it smells amazing when it's heating up in the office microwave.

Excellent! I didn't even ever care for the traditional canned sloppy joes but this recipe looked good so I thought I'd give it a try - my family loved it and it is now a regular in our house!
