Wimpies

Submitted by: MACS706

Introduction

Some people call these Sloppy Joe's. I think that the canned sauce (manwich) is too tart to call them Authentic wimpies. This is on the sweeter side. This is a recipe that is as close to mom's as I could come up with. Unfortunately I never did ask her how to make them. You can substitue bottled or home canned Chili sauce(recommended) for the Tomato sauce (I do use it if I have it on hand but couldn't find it in the ingredient search) Serve it on whole wheat hamburger buns. (not included in nutrition count)
1/2 cup per serving.
You can use ground turkey or TVP I have tried both and prefer the extra lean ground beef.

Ingredients

    2 lbs. *Ground Beef 93% Lean, (32 oz )
    Tomato Sauce, with onions, green peppers, and celery, 1 can, 15 oz
    2 cans Tomato Soup, (10.75 oz)
    Brown Sugar, 2 tbsp unpacked
    Garlic, 3 tsp chopped
    2tsp. Onion Powder
    2tsp. Garlic Powder
    1/4tsp. Nutmeg

Directions

Makes approximately 16- 1/2 cup servings.
In a large saucepan or chicken fryer (about 5 quart) Brown Ground Beef sprinkled with chopped garlic , you may drain if you wish (usually there is little fat - only juice with the lean variety of beef.) You can reduce the liquid by pushing the meat to one side of the pan and tilting the pan so that the liquid is over the heat & can evaporate a little.
Season if you wish with garlic powder and onion powder, & nutmeg. I always do - The spices ARE counted in the calorie and carb info.)
Add the sauce and the tomato soup. Bring to a boil stirring frequently. Cover reduce heat and simmer on medium heat - stirring often. If the sauce needs to thicken remove cover for the last 10 minutes or so. They are supposed to be loose but not watery.

For a semi- hands free cooking brown meat and then add to a crock pot and cook for 5-6 hours.
