Homemade Sloppy Joe

Homemade Sloppy Joe
Are you getting tired of seeing what I eat? I wonder. Let me know what you think or if you try any of my recipes. The idea is, if I inspire your cooking and make it easy maybe you will have more time and energy for your paper crafts. Here is a yummy, flexible and easy homemade sloppy joe.

Homemade Sloppy Joe
1 1/2 – 1 3/4 lb ground turkey or lean ground beef
1/2 small onion diced small
1/2 green or red bell pepper diced small
1/2 cup ketchup
8 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 can of tomato paste (about 2 tbsp)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp sugar

Brown ground beef or turkey in a skillet. Add onion and bell pepper and cook an additional 2 minutes until vegetables are tender. Season with a sprinkle of seasoned salt (I use Lawry’s), onion powder and garlic powder. Add ketchup, tomato sauce, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and sugar, stir to combine. Bring to a boil then turn down and simmer on low for 15 minutes. Serve on a multi-grain flat roll or hamburger bun. The picture is my left overs as lunch the next day. I usually serve with broccoli or green beans and a garden salad. This is a fast easy dinner and much better then the canned sauce. I hope you enjoy! If you give it a try be sure to let me know what you think.

I LOVE seeing what you’re eating. I saw a cool tip for using tomato paste like that: FREEZE it. I’m not quite sure how to get it out of the can once it’s frozen; but the tip showed it in a cylindrical shape, in a baggie in the freezer. That way, you can slice off what you want and not waste the rest.
