Slim Sloppy Joes

Sunday, December 28, 2008

We have been using this recipe for sloppy joes for a few years now. It is a "light" version (thanks to a Cooking Light cookbook), but if you're expecting it to be like Manwich, it's not. It's definitely tasty, though.

Slim Sloppy Joes
(Source: Cooking Light 15-Minute Cookbook)

- 1 lb. ground round (we use 90% lean ground beef)
- 1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 2 tbsp. unprocessed oat bran
- 1 tbsp. low-sodium Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp. prepared mustard
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 (8 oz.) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
- 6 reduced-calorie hamburger buns, split and toasted

1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground round and onion; cook until meat is browned, stirring until meat crumbles. Drain and return to pan.

2. Stir ketchup and next five ingredients into meat mixture; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, stirring often.

3. Spoon mixture evenly over bottom halves of buns; cover with bun tops. Serve immediately.

I've been cooking some healthy meals, and came back to your slim sloppy joes recipe. The calories per serving, is that just the filling or is the bun included in that?
