Serves 4

Cook's Country Reduced-Fat Sloppy Joes


2 teaspoons vegetable oil
6 ounces white mushrooms, sliced thin
1 small onion, minced
1-1/4 teaspoons chili powder
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
10 ounces 93 percent lean ground beef
  Salt and pepper
4 hamburger buns

Cooking Instructions

Note: If the mixture becomes too dry during cooking, add water a tablespoon at a time to reach the desired consistency.

1. PROCESS MUSHROOMS: Heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high heat in large nonstick skillet until shimmering. Add mushrooms and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to food processor and pulse until mushrooms are finely ground.

2. MAKE SAUCE: Heat remaining oil in empty skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Cook onion and processed mushrooms, covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8 to 12 minutes. Stir in chili powder and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, sugar, water, and vinegar. Simmer over medium-low heat until vegetables are completely tender and sauce is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.

3. SIMMER BEEF: Add beef and simmer, breaking up meat with wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper. Divide mixture among buns. Serve.
