These are really good, I've made this over and over and have not tired of it. I've made it with no salt ketchup and tomato sauce and don't notice the no salt part. This is a slightly modified recipe for beef sloppy joes from simplyrecipes. Adding it here to get the nutritional values.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup carrot, minced
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 lb ground buffalo meat
- 1⁄2 cup ketchup
- 1 cup tomato sauce

- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 pinch ground cloves
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- 1 pinch fresh ground black pepper
- 1 Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium high heat. Add the carrots and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the chopped onion and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally until onions are translucent, about 5 more minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for 30 more seconds. Remove from heat. Remove vegetables from the pan to a medium sized bowl, set aside.
- 2 Heat the pan on high. Crumble the ground beef into the pan.
