Just say no to sauce-smothered beef on a bun! Our zesty concoction uses extra-lean turkey in our own special sauce... Trust us, we've got a few saucy tricks up our sleeve. Just have those napkins handy, peeps!
Ingredients: 1 lb. raw extra-lean ground turkey 5 small hamburger buns (light, if available) 1/2 cup chopped onions 1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers 1 cup canned tomato sauce 3/4 cup canned no-salt-added tomato sauce 2 tbsp. tomato paste 1 1/2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated) 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp. dry steak seasoning blend dash salt
Directions: Spray a large pan with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add turkey to the pan. Spread the meat around in the pan to break it up a bit.
In a small dish, combine Splenda, salt and steak seasoning. Sprinkle this mixture over the meat, and continue to stir meat in the pan. Once the meat has browned, reduce heat to medium.
Add onions, peppers, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar to the pan. Stir, and then continue to cook for 5 minutes.
Add tomato sauces and paste to the pan and stir well. Reduce heat to low, and cook the mixture for an additional 5 minutes.
Toast the buns, if desired. Put 1/5th of the mixture on each bottom bun, and then finish off with tops of the buns.
MAKES 5 SERVINGS
Heads Up! These Sloppy Janes are a little sweet, because, well, that's the way we like 'em! If you don't like yours sweet, feel free to leave out the Splenda.
Oh, Manwich! What's all this silliness with getting "about 7" servings out of a can of your sauce plus a pound of meat? NO CHANCE! If you cook up what's in that can with a pound of ground beef, you'll get FIVE sandwiches, if you're lucky! Like the name implies, this monster of a sandwich is typically overstuffed with an insane amount of filling (despite that can's ridiculous serving size suggestion!). And that filling is usually made of fatty, oily beef and sugary sauce. Serve it all up on a giant doughy bun, and you get the picture why it's no great calorie bargain. But, as always, HG was up for the challenge of making this bad boy guilt-free. Once you taste how saucy and delicious ours is (complete with actual pieces of FRESH onion and pepper!), there's really no reason to go back. Evolve with us! And leave the old-school sloppy joes to those poor humans who enjoy fatty beef with scary canned sauce (whoever they are).
