Do you remember this from SNL?
Anyway, we made Sloppy Joes the other night and I thought of this song. The recipe that we used is actually kinda healthy. Tasty and good for you? What’s not to like?
Jalapeno, bell pepper, and garlic.
I decided to use black beans instead of red or pinto beans.
Got these from Wal-Mart.
What? They’re super cheap and taste the same as the name brand stuff.
Adding the veggies.
And the pièce de résistance.
What was your favorite school lunch?
Sloppy Joes from Ellie Krieger
1 pound extra-lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno, minced
1 red pepper, diced
1 can small red beans or pinto beans, preferably low sodium drained and rinsed
1 ½ cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon mustard powder
¾ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
8 whole-wheat burger buns
Brown the meat and the onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up the meat into crumbles as it cooks. Pour the drippings out of the pan and discard. Add the garlic, jalapeno, and red pepper and cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in the rest of the ingredients, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes more. Place a half-cup scoop of the mixture onto each bun and serve.
