Beef and Mushroom Sloppy Joes

Eating healthy does not mean you have to give up beef or big flavors. Lean beef has so many health benefits as it is not only full of protein but also needed amino acids for the body. Here is my variation to beef and mushroom sloppy joes.

· Cooking Spray
· 12 ounces 94% or leaner ground beef
· 2 (8-ounce) packages sliced mushrooms - I prefer a mixed package
· 1 cup chopped yellow onion
· 3 garlic cloves, minced
· 1/2 cup no-salt-added tomato paste
· 1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
· 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
· 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
· 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
· 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce - I prefer Sriracha
· Low fat / low carb bread or buns


1. Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add beef; cook for 4 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble.

2. While beef cooks, place mushrooms in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic to pan; cook for 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Add tomato paste and next 4 ingredients to pan; cook 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender and liquid evaporates. Stir in the hot sauce. Spoon about 1 cup beef mixture on your favorite low fat / low carb bread or bun.

Serves 3 or 4 depending on how hungry you are
