There are different meals that are staples in certain homes. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know what some of ours are 🙂 What are yours?
One meal that I know is a popular staple with some families is sloppy joes. And that’s great. It’s just not something I remember eating much at all growing up…and until now, a meal that I never made.
All I picture when I hear the words is a Manwich can. Do they even make that anymore?
Anyway, the mood struck me recently, and I caved. With a healthier version. On homemade rolls (another first!!! recipe coming soon).
Thumbs up for sure. This could be a new staple for us…and hopefully for you, too! You could even make it your healthy option for Super Bowl Sunday, that is, if you’re considering one 🙂
Turkey Sloppy Joes
slightly adapted from Martha Stewart
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 cups chopped carrots
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons tomato paste
3/4 pound ground turkey
1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
4 sandwich rolls
Heat oil over medium heat in a large saucepan. Add carrots, onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, until soft.
Add tomato paste and cook another minute while stirring. Add turkey and cook another 4-5 minutes until no longer pink, while breaking meat up with a spoon.
Add tomatoes, sugar, vinegar and Worcestershire. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 12-14 minutes. Serve on rolls.
