    Default Do You Like Sloppy Joes?


    I know some call them by other names, but to me ground meat in a tangy
    "tomatoey" sauce served in a hamburger bun, is a sloppy joe, and always
    been popular at our house.

    How do you make them at home (if you do)?

    Now that we're more conscious of our diet, I've been using ground
    turkey, instead of beef, and makes a excellent sandwich.

    I think it would taste better with beef. If you're trying to avoid
    beef fat, just use leaner ground beef. "Besides*, do you even know
    the difference between beef fat and turkey fat? I assume the answer
    is no. Using ground turkey because it's cheaper, or if you happen to
    like the taste better is perfectly legit. Using it because you think
    that it's a lot healthful than beef is bogus. In some ways, it is
    less healthful

    I've always liked that, unfortunately I'm the only one in the family
    who does.

    I don't buy ground poultry. I suspect that they may grind in the
    skin, and perhaps too much fat. etc. If you grind it yourself, and
    put in the lean stuff, different story.

    Not from scratch. I use lean ground beef (usually 90/10) and canned sauce.
    Most often, I use the Sloppy Joe sauce from Aldi; it is tasty and has less
    sugar then Manwich or most other brands of SJ sauce --- not gravy 8-)

    Throw it on a bun with some thin sliced or chopped onion and dig in. Since
    I'm usually preparing SJs for only one or two people, I often have slop, or
    is it joe, left over; I use it to stuff bell pepper(s) to have for lunch or
    dinner the next day.

    At least up here in Canada, in Canada way up yonder to the north,
    (except for Haffner) they changed the formula for Dr. Pepper. I don't
    like it as much anymore. It's kind of creamy like.

    If you knew more about fat, you'd probably be less concerned about
    animal fats, especially in moderation. I bought a bit less than
    1-1/2# of ground sirloin, and I melted about a tablespoon of refined
    (tasteless) coconut oil into the pan before browning it.. It's going
    to end up as chili.

    I think the skin is the best tasting part of poultry, and of pork for
    that matter.

    I like sloppy joes, especially during the colder weather. I prefer the
    darker coloured ones though, and try to stay away from the greys.

    I sure don't take the skin off of roast turkey. I am a tad concerned
    however about what exactly goes into ground poultry here (fatwise).
    And the amounts in there. I know that animal fats are made out to be
    worse than they are. Like I said, even in my original post, 'too much
    fat' is not something I want. The Inuit people did not have a healthy
    diet in the past. Too much fat/meat??? Even all that good ole' seal
    oil didn't counteract the effects of their diet. Now, their diet is
    prolly less healthy if they are getting all the processed foods that
    they never had before.
    Having said that, Ted Nugent (the guy that wants to kill people who
    wear laundry on their head) swears by venison.

    I have not had a sloppy Joe for ages. They taste ok. I hate the sloppiness
    of it.

    How about an isaly's chipped ham sandwich with a can of pop ?
