Sloppy joes with sun dried tomatoes...

This recipe will taste good whether you’re exhausted with heat stroke or not.

And you can serve it with that cucumber ribbon salad in the picture.

Gourmet sloppy joes Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • teaspoon grated Italian seasoning (like the McCormack grinder in the picture, or just plain Italian seasoning)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 6 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4-6 hamburger buns
How to:
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add in onions, and cook until almost tender, add in bell pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Add in Italian seasoning. Add in beef, and cook until browned.

Stir in tomato paste, brown sugar, vinegar, sauce, and sun-dried tomatoes. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes, and season with salt and pepper. Serve on rolls.
