**We had this for dinner about a week ago. I thought it would be fun since I love grilled sourdough bread to have it on that, and I enjoyed it. I think to switch up the sloppy joes next time I make them, I may buy some french bread and broil it under the broiler with some butter and parmesan cheese and then serve the sloppy joe mix on top of that.**
This is the recipe I use, but it is so easy to just buy the packet of sloppy joe mix, or a can of "manwich" to make a quick dinner.
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced or 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 tbsp. flour
1 cup water
2 tsp. prepared mustard
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
In a skillet, over medium high heat, sauté ground beef, onion, pepper and garlic in a tsp. of olive oil (if beef is very lean). Cook, stirring occasionally until meat loses its red color.
Stir in flour, water, mustard, worcestershire sauce, and ketchup. Cook uncovered for about 20 minutes.
