Fast and Easy Turkey Sloppy Joes Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 pound ground turkey
  2. 1 small onion
  3. 1 carrot
  4. 1 celery stalk
  5. 1/2 red pepper
  6. 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  9. 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  10. 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  11. 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  12. 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  13. 1/4 cup ketchup
  14. 1/4 cup water
  15. 1 15-ounce can stewed tomatoes
  16. 4 hamburger rolls

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the ground turkey. Season with the salt, paprika, and oregano, and give it a stir. Let the turkey brown while you chop the onion, carrot, celery, and red pepper into small dice.
  2. Add the chopped veggies to the turkey and stir. Continue cooking until the turkey has browned, about five to seven minutes.
  3. Measure and add the Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, ketchup, and water. Stir together until everything is happily bubbling.
  4. Add the can of stewed tomatoes and stir, breaking them up into smaller chunks. Turn the heat down to medium-low and let the sloppy joes simmer for about 10 minutes.
  5. Taste for flavor and adjust seasoning as needed. Place the rolls in the toaster or under the broiler until lightly toasted.
  6. Now for the fun step: place half of the mixture into a blender and pulse on low a few times to break down the turkey and vegetables into smaller pieces.
  7. Add the blended mix back to the pan and stir until incorporated. Serve on the toasted rolls alongside a big salad, and dinner is ready!
