Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (88 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 delicious and will definitely make it again!
It tasted so much better than Manwhich and was extremely easy to make. I chopped onions & green peppers (omitted mushrooms) in a food processor and cooked with chop meat. I took the advice from another and used a can of Fire Roasted Petite Diced Tomatoes instead of chopping fresh tomatoes. I also used very little cider vinegar. Thanks to everyone for their reviews because it helped me create a great dish for the family!

Delicious!

I have been instructed to never again buy store bought sloppy joe sauce. My family loved these. I served them with roasted potatoes. Perfect!

Easy to make, and my family loved them.

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.

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
