EatingWell Sloppy Joes

This updated Sloppy Joe is zesty. Served on a whole-wheat bun, it's a hearty dinner sandwich.

Pick N Save is helping me out with ground beef on sale and I am pairing it with coupons and coming up with the tastiest money saving around! It is normally $4.29 and I got it for $2.99/lb. to make my featured recipe today.

EatingWell Sloppy Joes
12 oz 90%-lean ground beef
1 large onion, finely diced
2 cups finely chopped cremini mushrooms, (about 4 ounces)
5 plum tomatoes, diced
2 Tbs all-purpose flour
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup chili sauce, such as Heinz
1/4 cup ketchup
8 whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted if desired

1. Crumble beef into a large nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat until it starts to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add onion and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the vegetables are soft and the moisture has evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes.

2. Add tomatoes and flour; stir to combine. Stir in water, vinegar, chili sauce and ketchup and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened and the onion is very tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm on buns.

Sounds good! Haven't made sloppy joes in a while but I usually cheat and use Manwich.

I love sloppy joe's but I haven't ever added flour to them. Or the vinegar - but I'm guessing the latter is because I usually make babecue sauce ahead of time and dump it in. I love the addition of the tomatoes, too. Yum. And of course... now I'm hungry. :)
