Not So Sloppy, Sloppy Joes

On cold nights (much like the ones we have had recently) bumming on the sofa watching a scary movie with my sister is the way to go. But there is one thing missing… some delicious comfort food.  But a lot of the times when you think of the phrase “comfort food” you think unhealthy.  I am not a big believer in diets, I believe in eating what you want in moderation while maintaing an overall healthy lifestyle. So with that said, if I want a sloppy joe, I’m going to eat a sloppy joe.  This “Not So Sloppy, Sloppy Joe” does not contain a lot of high fat.  Instead of adding olive oil and ketchup like many sloppy joe recipes, I simply stuck with the basics.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 Bell Pepper (I’d suggest red, yellow or orange.)
  • 1/2 Purple Onion
  • 1 lb. Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 3 Tbsp Steak Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  •  1 Tomato Paste (You’ll need at least three tablespoons)
  • 1 15 oz can Tomato Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Steak Seasoning

What To Do:

  1. In a medium temp. skillet brown ground beef. Once finished, take off heat and place to the side.
  2. Chop Bell Pepper, Onion, and Garlic.  Once chopped put into skillet with browned ground beef. Place back onto the stove at a high heat.
  3. After adding vegetables, add tomato sauce, tomato paste, steak sauce, steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. While cooking add extra tomato paste if it becomes too “soupy.”
  5. Cook until vegetables are no longer crunchy (30-45 minutes), and flavors begin blend completely.
  6. Serve on buns and enjoy! (Get rid of unnecessary calories with wheat bread.  Simply carve the inside of the bread out so it forms a boat shape!)
