Simple Sloppy Joes

Here is a great weeknight recipe that kids love!  It is simple to make and after you taste these sloppy joes, you’ll never buy Manwhich again!  If you want to sneak some vegis in, just grate some carrots into the beef and onion mixture as it browns.

2 lbs ground beef

1/2 c chopped onion

1 tsp prepared minced garlic

1 8 oz can tomato sauce

1 6oz can tomato paste

1 12 oz bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce (found by the ketsup)

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

3 Tbs soy sauce

1-2 Tbs mustard (I use dijon, but you can use yellow)

8 whole grain hamburger buns


1.  In a skillet, cook beef, onion, and garlic until browned.  Drain well

2.  Stir in tomato sauce, paste, chili sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, and mustard

3.  Reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 minutes
