How Do I Make a Manwich Sloppy Joe Sandwich?
It’s really pretty easy.
Step #1: brown a pound of hamburger in a large skillet, breaking it down into ground pieces.
Step #2: while the meat is browning, chop up your peppers and onions, ensuring they are all bite size or smaller pieces.
Step #3: drain off any fat that is left in your skillet.
Step #4: saute the onion and pepper for 3-4 minutes, just to make tender before adding back in the meat.
Step #5: turn heat down to medium low and stir in tomato sauce, cumin, salt and pepper.
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.
