Sloppy Joes

First non-apple post in ages, and I forgot to put it up this morning!

I got this recipe from Cooking Light, where it was written kind of stupidly. Once you get around that, though, it is actually a tasty recipe, so I’ll try to write it a bit more coherently. This makes enough for 4 sandwiches, but I might have some sort of side ready, as it’s not a suuuuper huge amount of food.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • a heaping 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (or just a heaping 1/4 cup) ketchup
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 8 ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 4 buns

Combine the ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire, tomato paste, red wine vinegar, and tomato sauce in a small bowl. Stir together and set aside.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. While it heats, grate the carrot and chop the onion, if it’s not pre-chopped. Add the carrot, onion, and beef to the pan.

Cook 6 minutes or until the beef is browned and the vegetables tender. Add the garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper and cook one minute.

Add the ketchup mixture and stir to evenly coat the beef mixture.

Simmer 5 minutes or until thickened. While the sauce thickens, toast the buns if you want to. I made more cool rise bread for buns.

And then it’s dinner!
