Super Sloppy Joes-Super Easy!

We are going over to North Carolina for Christmas to visit my in-laws. I told my mother-in-law that I would start posting my "safe" dinner recipes so she had some options to choose from. Her goal is to make dinner Brody safe, which is wonderful! So, I will be posting quite a few dinner recipes between now and then.

Let's start with this one, it is tasty, easy and good comfort food for cold nights winter.

Super Sloppy Joes

This recipe is free of milk, eggs, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts and shellfish
(it could also be soy and fish free if you omit the Worcestershire sauce)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
1 1/4 pounds ground beef sirloin
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons steak seasoning blend, such as McCormick brand Montreal Seasoning (or you could use salt and pepper if you would like)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (Omit this if you have a soy or fish allergy)
1 8oz can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste (you can add more later if you want it thicker)
4 crusty rolls (I used EnerG Tapicoa Dinner Rolls-they are free of gluten, wheat, casein, dairy, egg, soy, nut, corn), split, toasted, and lightly buttered with safe butter, example: Earth's Balance or Smart Balance buttery spread is non dairy and vegan.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and meat to the pan. Spread the meat around the pan and begin to break it up. Combine brown sugar and steak seasoning. Add sugar and spice mixture to the skillet and combine. When the meat has browned, add onion and red peppers to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook onions, peppers, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce with meat for 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste to pan. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to simmer and cook Sloppy Joe mixture 5 minutes longer. Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, pile sloppy meat onto toasted, buttered (with Safe butter) bun bottoms and cover with bun tops.

* I double this recipe. I brown the meat, throw the rest of the ingredients in the crockpot and let it cook for about 4hrs (SO EASY!). I figure you may as well make more at the same time and then freeze the rest for another dinner. It freezes great!
