"Sacred cows make the best hamburger."
-Mark Twain, Author
I love Sloppy Joes. It's one of those comfort foods that's cheap, easy to make and it can be really good for you. Choose lean ground beef, fresh veggies and these simple spices rather than getting your Sloppy Joe out of a can or a seasoning packet. Lower in fat and salt, with a fresh homemade taste, this recipe won't take much longer than the "instant" mixes.
Servings: 4 | Serving size: about 1 1/2 cups Sloppy Joe filling on a bun
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
