Ingredients
  • Total Time: 45 minutes

  • 12 ounces 90%-lean ground beef

  • 1 large onion, finely diced

  • 2 cups finely chopped cremini mushrooms, (about 4 ounces)

  • 5 plum tomatoes, diced

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar

  • 1/4 cup chili sauce, such as Heinz

  • 1/4 cup ketchup

  • 8 whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted if desired

Directions
  1. The filling will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month.

  2. 8 servings, generous 1/2 cup filling each

  3. Crumble beef into a large nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat until it starts to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add onion and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the vegetables are soft and the moisture has evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes.

  4. Add tomatoes and flour; stir to combine. Stir in water, vinegar, chili sauce and ketchup and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened and the onion is very tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm on buns.

I'd love all of this but unfortunately my husband would never go for the tomatoes and especially for the mushrooms. I do wonder if I could talk him in to putting everything he doesn't like on to my sloppy joe and eating the rest. That is a good thought. I just might have to try it. :)
