Sloppy Joe Sliders

Serve up mini versions of a weeknight favorite. Make the sauce ahead of time, if you like. Just reheat it and toast the buns to finish the sliders.

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2011

  • Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 2 sliders)
  • Hands-on: 17 Minutes
  • Total: 17 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large carrot
  • 10 ounce lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup prechopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 (8-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 8 slider hamburger buns

Preparation

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. While the pan is heating, grate carrot. Add carrot, beef, and onion to pan; cook 6 minutes or until beef is browned and vegetables are tender. Add garlic powder, chili powder, and pepper; cook 1 minute.

3. Combine 1/4 cup ketchup and the next 5 ingredients (through tomato sauce) in a small bowl. Add ketchup mixture to pan, stirring to evenly coat beef mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened.

4. While sauce thickens, arrange buns, cut side up, in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Place about 1/4 cup beef mixture on bottom half of each of 8 buns; top each slider with top half of bun.
