For the Love of Food: Sloppy Joe!December 7, 2010
“I know how you kids like them exxxxtra slllloppy!”
We have a great cookbook by Ellie Krieger. The recipes are not always Paleo friendly, and she definitely has a low-fat slant, but we like the simplicity of her dishes and the focus on real, fresh ingredients.
This is a Sloppy Joe recipe that we adapted from her book, “The Food You Crave”. It’s a great one to try out on your unsuspecting family. They will love it, and they won’t have a clue that it’s actually healthy.
Brown 1 lb of grassfed ground beef in a saucepan, using 2 spoons to break up the meat into tiny pieces (ie: don’t let it clump together into hamburgers). Cook until all pieces are brown.
To the saucepan, add 6 cloves of minced garlic, 1 minced jalepeno pepper ( you can substitute for another spicy pepper, or eliminate altogether if you don’t like spice). Cook and stir for an additional 5 minutes.
Then add 1 diced medium white onion, 1 diced red bell pepper, 1 yellow bell pepper, 1 1/2 cups of tomato sauce ( or diced tomatoes, if you want it to be chunkier), 1 T of red wine vinegar, 1 T Wocestershire sauce, 1 t dry mustard, salt and pepper to taste.
Let the mixture simmer for an additional 10-15 minutes. Serve in a bowl. Yum!Recipes. Bookmark the permalink. ← WOD: Tuesday, December 7th WOD: Wednesday, December 8th →
