Ever have Sloppy Joes that didn't come from a powdered packet? Well, I hadn't until I had these.
This recipe comes from the Everyday Food: Great Food Fast cookbook. It only takes slightly more effort than opening up a packet. But, tastes so much better.
The effort part involves dicing 1 medium onion, 1/2 a red bell pepper, 1 stalk of celery, and 2 cloves of garlic.
Next, heat 1 tablespoon of canola oil in a large skillet.
Add the diced veggies & saute for about 7 minutes,
or until they are soft.
Add 1 pound of ground beef,
break up with a spatula,
and saute until cooked through.
Stir in a 15 ounce can of tomato sauce,
1/4 cup ketchup & 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until thickened.
Serve on a soft hamburger roll.
