This is easy and so much better than the sloppy joe you buy in a can. Recipe is easily doubled and if you have any teen-agers around you'll need to double it!
- 1 lb hamburger
- 1 (14 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 0.5 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chilies (or plain diced tomatoes will do)
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup Splenda sugar substitute (or sugar)
- 1 green pepper, diced
- Crumble and fry hamburger over medium heat until no longer pink.
- Drain away any excess fat.
- Add the rest of the ingredients.
- Stir and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until green pepper is soft.
- Serve over toasted hamburger buns.
Had this for dinner tonight, it was pretty good. Its a chunky and sweeter version of sloppy joes. My only complaints are that the splenda made it have an after-taste and the green peppers never really softened. So if I was to make it again, I'd use regular sugar (maybe only 1/8 cup) and I'd cook the peppers with the raw ground beef from the beginning. This recipe was very easy. Thanks for posting!
No more Canned sloppy joes for us! I used the mild diced tomatoes with chiles, since the little ones were eating. Threw in some chopped Vidalia onion- (it's just arrived here, and we love them). I was hoping for leftovers for lunch, but... no luck!! Thanks for a great kid-pleaser!
