Back in the old days, when I needed to stretch food ingredients as far as possible, Sloppy joes were on heavy rotation. Thank goodness that is no longer true.
However, I forget how nummy some of those cheap eats actually were and I need to go back and revisit a few.
Since the boys aren’t eating with us very often, I can really cook anything I want.
I start by sautéing an onion and a green pepper. When it’s soft, I add the meat and brown. I like to add granulated onion and garlic. Next I add tomato paste. Depending on the amount of meat I’m using will determine the amount of paste I use.
Simmer this mixture for 10 to 15 minutes.
G likes this on a brioche bun, toasted in the broiler.
*****from the Recipe Box:
I really like green peppers. If that’s not your choice, use any color you do like.
and remember: Why don’t the 99% of us who aren’t offended by everything, quit catering to the 1% who are. Big kiss, Lynn
