Sloppy Joes

A Sloppy Joe is traditionally a sandwich, originating in the United States, consisting of ground beef, onions, tomato sauce or ketchup and other seasonings served on a hamburger bun. This Slimming World friendly version is packed with flavour but with none of the Syns and if you use your wholemeal roll and cheese as Healthy Extra choices, it's totally Syn-free!
Serves 4
Syns per serving: Extra Easy and Original - Syn-free**
**add 6 Syns per serving if not using the cheese as a Healthy Extra A choice, and a further 6 Syns per serving if not using the roll as a Healthy Extra B choice
• Fry Light
• 500gm extra lean beef or turkey mince
• 1 onion, finely chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
• 250ml passata
• 1 green pepper, deseeded and finely diced
• 1tbsp granulated sweetener
• 1tbsp cider vinegar
• 1tbsp Worcestershire sauce
• 1tsp dried mixed herbs
• 1tsp mustard powder
• 1tsp paprika
• 4 x 60gm wholemeal bread rolls**
• 160gm reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, grated**
1. Spray a large pan with Fry Light and gently fry the onion and garlic over a low heat for a few minutes until starting to soften.
2. Add the mince, increase the heat and fry for 5 minutes, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon and stirring until the mince is browned. Add the green pepper and cook for a few minutes more.
3. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to the boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 15-20 minutes until cooked through and the sauce has thickened.
4. Cut the bread rolls in half and toast the cut side. Place two halves of the bread roll on each plate and top with a quarter of the Sloppy Joe sauce. Top each one with a quarter of the cheese and serve with Syn-free potato wedges and a large side salad.
