There is no such thing as Sloppy Joe for one so here's my recipe for Sloppy Joe. You can feed EIGHT, on one pound of beef, no kidding!
One pound ground beef, I use 95% lean but you can use whatever you like,
but please none of that chicken stuff, yuk!
Two Peppers, I use one green and one red. I've tried lots of pepper combinations, trust me, this one is the best.
One Vidalia Onion, nope yellow is not the same and the end result will prove it... trust me, I've been working on this recipe for years. hahaha
One tablespoon of ground mustard. You can use the liquid kind, but again...not quite as good (but then my favorite liquid one is French's so if you have a fancy one that might have more kick to it, go for it!)
THREE cups of ketchup, I know, I know...use organic if it makes you feel better but I heart Heinz!
Two packs of rolls or pita pockets
BIG, BIG pot...so your stove wont get all messy. =)
Brown the beef, mine has no drippings but if yours does, scoop them out...yuk!
Add everything, and I do mean everything...ketchup, mustard, onions, peppers, kitchen sink...oh wait, leave that out...
As soon as you add everything in the pot, mix it all in till it's all pink from the Ketchup.
Lower the heat to LOW, and simmer for one hour (the longer the better...). If it starts to get too dry while cooking add a cup of water, it should look like stew or chunky spaghetti sauce.
It will thicken upon standing.
Let it sit for a while before serving (it'll be even better the next day and it will freeze beautifully!)
Serve: on buns, or in pita pockets for less WW points. =)
Enjoy... it's what's for dinner at my house, and as you can see...it's what we had for lunch!
