3 Piece Food Recipes: Turkey Sloppy Joe

3 Piece Food Recipes: Turkey Sloppy Joe

As we enter the hot seasons, my family and I have been craving bbq and sloppy joes. It had been so long since I had beef, and I couldn't believe I was still craving sloppy joes. I realized I had never had one with different meat or without tomatoes. The real taste of sloppy joes is only possible with tomatoes. Still, I could replicate it using ketchup so it wouldn't be too acidic. I was so happy, and I loved this recipe. After making the recipe mine, I have made it three times; that's how much we loved it.

Turkey Sloppy Joe Recipe:

  • 1 Package of 16 oz Ground Turkey
  • 1 Whole Yellow Onion
  • 1 Whole Green Pepper
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/3 cup of Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup of Mustard
  1. Blend the onion, garlic, and green pepper
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the ketchup, Mustard, and Worcestershire sauce
  3. Grab a pan, spread olive oil in it, and lightly heat it 
  4. Then add the ground turkey and spread the blended veggies on top to cover all the ground turkey
  5. Let the ground turkey brown, then mix the blended well into it
  6. Once the ground turkey is thoroughly brown, add the sauce from the bowl
  7. Let the sauce simmer in the ground turkey and mix thoroughly
  8. Then turn off the heat
  9. Grab your buns and add the sloppy joe to the buns
  10. Then eat

It is always best to eat Sloppy joe hot. So when you reheat it later, get the juice and warm it up before adding it to the buns. I prefer the 85%lean/15% fat ground turkey for this recipe because the fat makes it even juicer. If you want less fat, you can use the 93%lean/7%fat ground turkey.

I like adding salt and pepper before blending the onion, garlic, and green pepper. Hence, it is evenly throughout the meat, but you can use it to taste when you want. I usually do four shakes for the Worcestershire sauce but change it based on the smell. If it feels close to strong at two shakes, I stop. You can try 2 Tablespoons, about as many as two shakes, and then make changes based on your taste. All measurements match my family's taste; you can make changes based on your family's needs.

I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as my family does.
