SAVANNAH SLOPPY JOES
YIELDS 8 SERVINGS
3 pounds 95/5 LEAN GROUND BEEF
1 cup sweet onion, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
6 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 jar BBQ Sauce (15-18 oz)
2 tablespoon Onion Steak Sauce
salt and pepper to taste
8 slices of KRAFT FAT FREE AMERICAN CHEESE
8 Sandwich WHOLE WHEAT hamburger buns, split and toasted
Cook ground beef, onion and pepper until beef is no longer red, stirring to break up. Sprinkle flour over beef; stir to blend thoroughly. Add BBQ Sauce and Steak Sauce and simmer, stirring often, for 15 to 25 minutes, or until thickened. Salt and pepper to taste. Note: If mixture becomes too thick, just add a little warm water to thin out. To serve, top the toasted buns with a large scoop of the hot sloppy joe mixture and a single slice of cheese.

It took me no time at all to whip this dinner together. The peppers and onions are all that really need to be done before throwing it all together. In a pinch, this gives us busy cooks a great option for a healthy, home-cooked southern specialty. ENJOY!!
