I haven't tried this yet. Got the recipe from a Hannaford "Fresh" magazine.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 cup yellow onion, diced
- 1⁄2 cup bell pepper, diced
- 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons water
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
- 3⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
- 4 hamburger buns, split
- Place a large skillet over medium heat; when it's hot, add oil. Add onions, peppers, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until they've softened and darkened, about 10 minutes. Be careful not to let garlic burn. If pan gets too dry, add the water.
- Add ground beef and chili powder and cook, breaking up beef with a spoon, until it's no longer raw, about 5 minutes. Drain off excess oil, if desired. Add ketchup and mustard and cook until mixture thickens and comes together, about 10 minutes. (Filling may be made up to two days in advance and reheated). While mixture is cooking, toast hamburger burns.
- Place bottom halves of buns onto four plates. Ladle a quarter of the filling onto each bun, add top halves, and serve immediately.
I ate this today. That would make my life better than yours. Now go cry yourself to sleep. :-P Made for Best of 2011 recipe tag.
This is the kind of sloppy joes I like. Great recipe, so easy to do. I ate mine with hot peppers and monterey jack cheese. Thanks Abbs :) Made for Cookbook tag game
The kids enjoyed these 'joes' for lunch today and so did I. The green pepper is something I've never added to 'joes' before, but flavor it added was excellent! Looking forward to using this recipe again. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup (July '10-Jan '11)
