Recipe of the Day!

Slim Sloppy Joes
Makes 4 cups

The kids will enjoy this classic unadorned, but adults may want to spice it up by topping their sandwiches with chopped sweet onion, pickle slices, or pickled banana peppers. Serve the Sloppy Joe mixture on whole-wheat burger buns (toasted, if desired) and use 1/2 cup of the beef per serving. This makes enough for two meals, so you could freeze the remainder for later.
12 ounces lean ground beef round or sirloin
1 teaspoon canola oil
1 large green bell pepper, chopped2 cans (8 ounces each) tomato sauce
2/3 cup frozen corn kernels
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
To Make:
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Crumble in the beef and cook, stirring often, until it loses its pink color, about 5 minutes. Drain the beef in a colander and wipe out the skillet.
In the same skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the bell pepper and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 3 minutes. Return the beef to the skillet and stir in the tomato sauce, corn, ketchup, vinegar, sugar, and black pepper. Bring just to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until lightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
