We got Internet and cable back today, Hallelujah! Like I said before, I haven’t really been doing a lot of trying of new recipes recently. This isn’t a fancy recipe at all and probably most people make their own form of sloppy Joe’s that are much more elaborate than this, but here’s mine! Super simple, super fast, and with minimal ingredients. This is definitely one of my “go-to” recipes when I don’t feel like cooking!
– 1 pound lean ground beef (or turkey)
– 1 small can of tomato paste
– 1 packet of McCormick Sloppy Joe seasoning
– 1 cup water
– wheat hamburger buns
– shredded cheddar cheese
Begin by browning the ground beef in a medium skillet. Drain fat and return the beef to the pan. Add the tomato paste, water, and seasoning packet to the skillet. Give the mixture a big stir and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat down and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes. Serve on wheat hamburger buns and top with shredded cheddar cheese.
Add a side of vegetables for a balanced meal 🙂
