Grandma's Sloppy Joes
While my in-laws were in town this weekend, I wanted to make something that my father-in-law (the meat and potatoes guy) could eat on his "no chew" diet. And, I needed something that my mother-in-law could also enjoy, being gluten and dairy free.
I put out an all-call for Sloppy Joe recipes, and one of my cousins-in-law responded with a family recipe!
This simple sloppy joe was a hit at our place... so good, in fact, that my father-in-law didn't know he ate 100% whole wheat dinner rolls :) Thank goodness for White Whole Wheat Flour!
I've acclimated the recipe to our tastes and dietary restrictions. The original recipe called for "real" mustard and also for Worcestershire sauce, which has wheat in it. The recipe below is 100% gluten free!
Grandma's Sloppy Joes - Adapted from Frog Prince's Grandma
1 lb. ground turkey
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, chopped (I used 2 T minced onion flakes)
1/4 C chopped green pepper
1 C ketchup
1 T dried mustard
2 T vinegar
2 T brown sugar
Begin by browning the ground turkey with onion and garlic. When warmed and cooked, transfer to a slow cooker.
Add in the brown sugar, vinegar, dried mustard and ketchup.
Stir to combine.
Cover, and cook on low for 1-2 hours.
Then, add in the green peppers.
Continue cooking for 1-2 more hours.
Serve warm atop freshly made hamburger rolls.
