Meals in Minutes Monday-Smokey Joes

Good morning readers!! Kara here with today's meals in minutes. My son loves sloppy joes, and I do too, but sometimes you get tired of the same ole' stuff. Searching the web I can across They have many healthy,quick and easy recipes. Smokey Joe's are awesome, and I hope you will try them one day and let us know here, how you liked them! (Note: They are a little spicy, so to cut back on that, you could not add the chipotle powder. My son loves spicy things)

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped ( I just use garlic powder, it saves me time)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder (or 1/2 teaspoon canned chipotles)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 4 hamburger buns

  1. In a large skillet over high heat, sauté the beef, onions, and garlic until the beef is cooked and browning, and all the liquid has boiled off (around 10 minutes).
  2. Turn the heat down to low, then add the spices and cook, stirring, for a few seconds.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients, then partially cover and simmer over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent scorching.
  4. Divide the mixture among the buns and serve.

In the end, this is what you'll sure to have LOT'S of napkins :)
