    Sloppy Joes

    Our updated Sloppy Joe takes lean ground beef and adds chopped cremini mushrooms and diced fresh plum tomatoes, all in a zesty sauce. Served on a whole-wheat bun, it’s a hearty dinner sandwich that will please adults and kids alike.


    • 12 ounces 90%-lean ground beef
    • 1 large onion, finely diced
    • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, finely chopped; about 4 ounces
    • 5 plum tomatoes, diced
    • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
    • 1/4 cup chili sauce, such as Heinz
    • 1/4 cup ketchup
    • 8 whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted if desired


    Step 1
    Crumble beef into a large nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat until it starts to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add onion and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the vegetables are soft and the moisture has evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes.
    Step 2
    Add tomatoes and flour; stir to combine. Stir in water, vinegar, chili sauce and ketchup and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened and the onion is very tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm on buns.


    Make Ahead Tip: The filling will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month.
