My kids love simple meals and honestly, I like to make them. I am not one who loves to spend a lot of time cooking in the kitchen, so anything I can do to simplify my life and it works for me! This Sloppy Joe recipe is one of the ways I do just that! Not only is it simple, it tastes so good (much better than that canned stuff from the store).
1 tbs Olive Oil
1/2 white onion, finely chopped (can increase full onion if you desire)
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped (can increase or eliminate this item)
1 clove of minced garlic
1 lb of ground beef or turkey
1 can of tomato sauce, 15 oz
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup of ketchup
Put oil into a skillet and add veggies and garlic. Lightly salt and pepper (as much or as little as your family likes). Cook until softened (around 5 min or so). Add ground beef or turkey and cook through. Drain off excess fat.
Put the meat back into the skillet and add the tomato sauce, Worcesterwhire sauce and ketchup. Simmer for around 7 – 9 minutes – until well blended and slightly thickened.
Spoon onto buns and add more salt and pepper (as desired). Serve with chips and fresh veggies!! Yum!!!!
