You can use any diet cola type soda for this recipe. The soda gives the sloppy joes a sweetness rather than tang. If your a Weight Watcher you can count 3 points for the sloppy joe but add points for whatever you serve it on. The recipe is core if you serve it over couscous or brown rice.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons arrowroot
- 1 cup diet cola
- 2⁄3 cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- Brown beef and onion in a large skillet.\.
- Drain well.
- Stir in remaining ingredients. Mix well.
- Cover and simmer 30 minutes.
These were just okay, though easy to make, these as my family said . Had some flavor, I think it could have used more. Made for Healthy Choices.
I have another sloppy joes recipe that I make quite often, but decided I wanted to try something different. It was very easy, but wasn't anything spectacular as far as taste. Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.
This didn't wow us although most of the kids ate it exclaiming "it taste like ketchup!" which I guess is good for them, but as far as flavour goes for adults we were looking for more depth I guess. It was very simple to make though, and our 8 year old and 2 year old liked it but the 10 year old passed as well. You win some and loose some I guess. Thanks anyway Budgiegirl!
