Paula Deen's Lean: Savannah Sloppy Joes

If you want to feel like a kid again, make some Sloppy Joes! Paula Deen's southern swing on this classic meal is something you are sure to enjoy. Made up of mostly meat, BBQ and steak sauce; the flavor is anything but boring and traditional. Follow these easy (and I mean REALLY easy) steps to a filling sandwhich the whole family will enjoy.


SAVANNAH SLOPPY JOES
YIELDS 8 SERVINGS



INGREDIENTS:
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



DIRECTIONS:
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.


The original recipe can be found at pauladeen.com.


RESULTS:
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!!
