Sloppy Joes

Photo by: Christopher Hirsheimer

These Sloppy Joes are everything you could wish for in this crowd-pleasing sandwich—a rich, meaty filling smothered in tangy-sweet, thick tomato sauce that just refuses to stay inside the bun. You definitely need a fork and a few napkins to eat this mouthwatering meal!

Yield: Serves 8

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pound lean or extra-lean (90% lean or higher) ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, diced (about 1½ cups)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (about 4 teaspoons)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced (about 1 cup)
  • One 15.5-ounce can small red or pinto beans, preferably low-sodium, drained and rinsed
  • 1½ cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon unsulfured molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 8 whole-wheat burger buns

Directions

Brown the meat and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up the meat into crumbles as it cooks. Pour the drippings out of the pan and discard. Add the garlic, jalapeño, and red pepper and cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, except the buns, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for another 5 minutes.

Place a ½-cup scoop of the mixture onto each bun and serve,
