Back on the cooking bandwagon everyone! I decided to start out with something quick and easy, because while I am home, we are super busy. This meal definitely brought back some childhood memories. While it was really good and tasted significantly lighter and fresher, I don't think anyone could top my mom's sloppy joes...probably because she puts so much love in them! hahaha barf right?! But really, kudos mom, you can cook a mean sloppy joe! Don't get me wrong people, this is a delicious recipe, so try it out! I used ground turkey instead of beef, because its leaner and well it's what I had in the freezer. ENJOY!
1 T oil
1 medium onion finely chopped
1/2 green pepper, finely chopped
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb ground beef
1 can tomato sauce (15 oz)
1/4 cup ketchup
1 T worcestershire
4 hamburger buns
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, celery, and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently until veggies are softened, 5-7 min.
Add ground beef to skillet, cook, breaking up meat until it is no longer pink, 6-8 min.
Stir tomato sauce, ketchup and worcestershire into beef mixture. Simmer until thickened, stirring occasionally, 6-8 min.
Season mixture with more salt and pepper, as desired. Spoon onto buns and serve immediately.
