I never realized how easy it was to make Homemade Manwich until one night I started browning the ground beef and realized I didn’t have the can in my pantry. After a slight panic I came out with my own Homemade Manwich Recipe and it’s better than that canned stuff…BY FAR!
This is one recipe that comes together in just a few minutes and is really as easy as dicing up half a onion and green pepper!
Every night I begin to cook dinner around 4:30-4:45 and sometimes that can be quite the challenge with the three kiddos. Often times the girls are doing school work or coloring while I’m bribing the baby with a few snacks or part of dinner while I’m making a meal for the family.
The Hubby has always enjoyed a Manwich sandwich every now and then. It wasn’t until I started really cooking that I realized it would be so much healthier and easier to just make it myself. If you can pour the canned stuff into the ground beef you can totally whip up this Homemade Manwich Recipe in your own kitchen.
My Hubby enjoys his Manwich with a side of mac n cheese as well as a spoonful on his Manwich Sandwich.
Homemade Manwich Recipe
- 1 lb. ground beef 80/20
- 1/2 yellow onion diced
- 1/2 green pepper diced
- pinch of ground cumin
- 1 1/2 C Tomato Sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
Brown Beef until halfway cooked.
Add in onion, green pepper and cumin, stir.
Once meat is browned and onions are translucent add tomato sauce to mixture, stir.
Turn heat down to low and let simmer for 15-30 minutes.
Serve on a hamburger bun, side of mac n cheese and salad for a complete meal your family will love.
For me I enjoy just half of a piece of bread, open faced style. I eat it with a fork and avoid the extra calories that the top bun has! If you want to skip the carbs all together you can place a scoop in a piece of bib lettuce.
