Mike and I both really enjoyed this one. I have been trying to use more ground beef since we have so much of it in the freezer from the side of beef we bought back in August. I can’t encourage you enough to buy fresh meat from a local farmer. The quality is so much better and it is much easier to plan your meals when you have a large variety of cuts of meat to choose from at hand.
Mike had his with mashed potatoes of course. He is such a rebel. hahaha. I had mine with asparagus. If you have children who like sloppy joes this will be good on buns for them. For the Diabetics I suggest having it the way I did below. It was very filling and my glucose was under 100 when I tested later.
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 2 cups water
- 3/4 cup 1 carb ketchup
- 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons Splenda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup cold water
In a large non-stick pan cook ground beef and onion until thoroughly cooked and onion is translucent. Drain grease. Add all but last two ingredients and stir well. Cook uncovered for 20 minutes.
Mix flour and cold water in a small bowl and add to mixture. Stir until thickened and serve. Serves 6.
Suggestion: This would also be good with cheddar cheese melted over it and served over spaghetti squash.
