There’s no reason that Sloppy Joes can’t be enjoyed by people who eat gluten free if served on gluten free buns. Of course for those of you not on gluten free diets, you can make this the same way and use regular buns.
There’s something very cozy about Sloppy Joes, especially when served in the winter. It’s a meal that brings me back to my childhood and I assume will someday be one that brings my kids back to theirs!
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 cup onion, chopped finely
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped finely
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dry mustard powder
1/2 cup chili sauce
14 oz. can tomato sauce
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. lemon juice
Brown ground beef. Mix ground beef and all other ingredients in a bowl and put into a large resealable freezer bag. Remove excess air and seal. Lay flat and freeze.
On cooking day, thaw the bag and cook in a crock pot for 2-3 hours on low or cook on the stovetop until heated through. Serve on gluten free buns. Our family’s preference for these is Udi’s whole grain gluten free hamburger buns. They are a great size and consistency for Sloppy Joes.
