Not TOO Sloppy – Joes
The other day I needed a fast dinner, and on our fast dinner list, my husband had written Sloppy Joes. Well, I decided this would be an easy quick meal, but I wanted some nutrition value, not just meat and bread – I also didn’t want to have to make side dishes**, call me lazy. So, I checked in the fridge and this is what I came up with, and actually, I WILL make this again this way from now on, and feel very good about serving it to my family.
1 bag of Cabbage Coleslaw Salad (the bag kind that is all cut up for you – for speed!-)
1/2 c Shredded carrots
1/2 Onion (shredded or very finely chopped)
2 cloves garlic (crushed,- to save time I used the jarred kind)
1 lb Beef (97/3 is what I used or you can do ground turkey)
a little salt
Ketchup (to taste)
Mustard (to taste)
2 Tbsps brown sugar
When the meat is cooked, add the salt, brown sugar, ketchup and mustard, start off with less and add more after you’ve mixed it in if you think you need it.
>YOu sneaky veggie adding chef! LOL GREAT idea! I LOVE it! I have to agree, there is something hardwired into our brains (probably from elementary school) that says you HAVE TO HAVE tater tots with sloppy joes! We almost always do for some reason! But we do not have a Sonic anywhere remotely near us ;-(
>That looks sooo good….wonder if my husband would relize there was cabbage in it. :o)
