Sloppy Joes

The Grocery List:

  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion , diced
  • 1 medium carrot , peeled and diced
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper diced
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 can (398 ml) reduced sodium tomato sauce (I used Hunts)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 5 warmed whole wheat buns
  • cheese (optional)

Cooking It all Up:

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Add the olive oil, beef, onion, carrot, pepper,and garlic.

Sauté, stirring occasionally, until the beef is cooked and the onions are translucent, 7 to 10 minutes.

Add the ketchup, tomato sauce, chili powder and Worcestershire sauce. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes or until desired consistency is reached.

Serve over the buns and top with cheese.

Chicks Health Note: You could easily ramp up the veggies by adding shredded zucchini, mushrooms etc. and you could reduce the calorie/fat content by using lean ground turkey instead of beef.
