Let’s start by browning 1 pound of turkey in a hot skillet.
Not a fan of ground turkey? Use beef!
When your turkey (or beef) is nice and brown drain it and add 1/2 of a white onion, chopped…
2 medium carrots, sliced…
And 1 green bell pepper, chopped.
If your thinking that this is a lot of veggies to put into a sloppy Joe, your right it is. But I promise, this sandwich won’t end up tasting like one big carrot!
Now add 2 cloves of garlic, minced…
1 can of diced tomatoes…
1 cup of ketchup…
1/2 cup of chicken broth…
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce…
1 teaspoon of dijon mustard…
I’m a big fan of dijon, so I went ahead and added another teaspoon!
1 teaspoon of chili powder…
2 tablespoons of brown sugar…
A couple dashes of your favorite hot sauce…
And a bit if salt and pepper to taste.
Can you believe it, we’re done!
Let this skillet of wonderfulness simmer for just a bit.
Don’t forget to do a taste test!
How do you like your buns?
I like my buns cheddar cheesy and toasted!
(Insert silly “buns” joke here.)
Once your buns are ready, go ahead and start assembling this masterpiece of a sandwich!
You wanna know what happens when you add a bunch of veggies to your sloppy Joe’s?
