Skinny Sloppy Joes

Serves 7
Serving Size=1/2 cup
Weight Watcher Points Plus=3
*I used sandwich thins which are worth an additional 2 WW points plus.

1.25 lbs 93% lean ground beef sirloin
1 tbsp steak seasoning or seasoned salt
1 carrot, minced
1 medium onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup red bell pepper, minced
4 oz mushrooms, minced
1 tbsp red wine vinegar (I substituted with Balsamic Vinegar)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 cups tomato sauce
2 tbsp tomato paste

Chop all the vegetables really fine, using a chopper or food processor.

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the meat to the pan and break it up as it cooks.  Season with steak seasoning and cook the meat until it browns, then add onion, garlic, carrots, mushrooms, and red peppers to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and add red wine vinegar (or Balsamic in my case) and Worcestershire sauce, cook 5 more minutes.  Add tomato sauce and paste to pan, stir to combine.  Cover and reduce heat to simmer and cook an additional 5 minutes. Using a measuring cup, pile 1/2 cup of sloppy meat onto toasted bun. Thanks to Skinny Taste for the recipe.
