In taking advantage of our beautiful venison meat, I decided to make sloppy joes this past week. As I told Paul what was on the menu, he asked if I was going to buy, "Manwich?" After spending a moment trying to figure out what Manwich was, I realized that I might not actually know what a "real" sloppy joe tastes like. The only ones I have had are either homemade from scratch or from Mother's, a Veggie Restaurant in Austin. So, please, be the judge and let me know if these are real...either way they sure were tasty!
Super Simple Sloppy Joe's
1lb Ground Venison, Turkey Breast, or Veggie Crumbles
1 diced medium white onion
1 diced small green pepper
1 large can pure tomato paste, no salt
1 can diced tomatoes, no salt
cajun seasoning or spicy seasoning of your choice
In a large sauce pan on medium/high heat, saute onion and green pepper until softened. Add ground protein source until cooked through. Add diced tomatoes and seasoning. Season to taste. Add tomato paste, 2 T at a time and mix in. Let cook over medium/low heat continuing to stir for about 5 minutes more, and serve!
