Sloppy Joes

An irresistible recipe for little fussy eaters taken from the Quick After-Work cookbook.

Sloppy Joes


Vegetable oil 1 tbsp

Onion 1 small, peeled and finely chopped

Garlic 1 clove, peeled and finely chopped

Carrot 1 large, peeled and grated

Lean minced beef 500g (1lb 2oz)

Chopped tomatoes 400g can

Tomato ketchup 2 tbsp, plus extra to serve

Beef stock cube 1

Cucumber ¼

Wholemeal rolls or hot dog rolls 4-8, dependent on size



Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the onion and garlic with about half the carrot and the beef for 5 minutes until the beef is browned all over.


Stir in the tomatoes and ketchup. Crumble in the stock cube, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thick.


Meanwhile, grate the cucumber and mix with the remaining carrot.


To serve, slice the rolls down the centre and open out. Spoon over the meat sauce. Serve immediately with carrot and cucumber sprinkled on top, and with extra ketchup.
