When I think, “Man Food”, sloppy joes are definitely on the list. Every time I make them, they are practically inhaled by my guys and they always go back for more! I’ve been making these sandwiches like this for years and finally remembered to snap a photo before they were devoured at dinner recently:
1lb. ground beef substitute
1/4c onion, chopped
1/4c green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 TBSP brown sugar
salt and pepper, to taste
1. In a large skillet over Medium heat, brown the meat, adding the onions and peppers toward the end so they don’t get too soft.
2. Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, ketchup, brown sugar, salt and pepper.
3. Reduce heat to Low and allow to simmer 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Served with the easiest green beans ever. I threw some cooked beans in a skillet with a little butter, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper – done.
