I feel like it has been forever since I concocted something completely new in the kitchen. I'm so glad I found some time to play this evening! I was pretty happy with these sloppy joes. I think the only thing I would really change is the sugar. They weren't too sweet, but they were close, so I might try half the amount of sugar next time.
Look at that big pile of yumminess...
1 lb ground beef
1/2 small vidalia onion, chopped
4 large mushrooms, chopped
5 oz tomato soup
2 heaping spoonfuls of plain yogurt
1/8 c ketchup
scant 1/2 c brown sugar
garlic powder, chili powder, cocoa powder
Brown the chopped onion in a little bit of olive oil, then add the tomato soup. Add the ground beef and use a spatula or spoon to break the beef up into small chunks. Add all other wet ingredients. Allow the mixture to boil, but stir frequently. When the meat is mostly cooked, add all of the remaining ingredients except for the mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until most of the liquid has boiled off and the mixture is thick enough to put in a sandwich. Add the mushrooms and cook until they are done, then remove pan from heat.
Build a sandwich. Eat the sandwich. Knife and fork required.
