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.

Prep: 35 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes
  • 12 ounces
    90%-lean ground beef
  • 1 large
    onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups
    cremini mushrooms, finely chopped; about 4 ounces
  • plum tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons
    all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup
  • 1/4 cup
    cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup
    chili sauce, such as Heinz
  • 1/4 cup
  • whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted if desired
  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.
  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.
