Beef & Bean Sloppy Joes
This healthy copycat recipe of the comfort food classic trades beans for some of the meat to bump up fiber by 7 grams. We also cut back on the sugar and ketchup in this Sloppy Joe recipe makeover to save you 12 grams of added sugar.
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 12 ounces 90%-lean ground beef
- 1 cup no-salt-added black beans, rinsed
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 teaspoons New Mexico chile powder
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- 1 pinch Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1 cup no-salt-added tomato sauce
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons spicy brown mustard
- 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
- 4 eaches whole-wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted
- Step 1 Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until lightly browned but not completely cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a medium bowl, reserving drippings in the pan.
- Step 2 Add beans and onion to the pan; cook, stirring often, until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add chile powder, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, mustard and brown sugar. Return the beef to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the beef is just cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Serve on buns.
