Healthy Sloppy Joe Recipe


1 lb lean ground beef
1-2 cups carrot
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 (or more) large bell pepper(s), chopped
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp red wine vinegar
up to 1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
whole wheat hamburger buns


Grate carrot, and chop onion and bell pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef, carrot, onion, and bell pepper to pan; cook until beef is browned and veggies are tender. Add garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper; stir. Combine Dijon mustard and the next 4 ingredients (through tomato sauce) in a small bowl. Add mixture to pan, stirring to evenly coat beef mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened. Toast buns in toaster on oven by broiler.
