Post  Admin on Tue Jun 14, 2011 4:10 pm

I got this recipe as a gift with some of the seasoning and some popcorn shrimp, It was supposed to be Crawfish Jambalya but in Mi. we do not have Crawfish so I substituted for shrimp..

1/2 lb Smoked Sausage
1/2 C. Bell Pepper
1/2 C. Celery
1/2 C. White Onion
1/4 C. Green Onion with the tops
1 Clove Garlic Minced or 1/2 tsp powder
1/2 C. Uncooked Rice
1 C. Water
1/2 cup canned tomatoes or 1 C. tomatoes with green chilies
1/2 lb Shrimp
1 tsp Creole Seasoning or salt and pepper to taste

Chop vegetables, Saute Sausage , Green Pepper, Celery, Onions, and Garlic in large skillet, Cook until tender, BUT NOT BROWN, Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil stir once or twice, reduce heat, Cover and simmer about 20 mins or until rice is tender , Mixture should be slightly moist , Fluff with fork and serve Very Happy

Healthy Homemade (not from a can) sloppy joes (from the Jamie Oliver website)

Post  brenda on Fri Jun 17, 2011 5:47 pm

Jamie Olivers Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joe is an all-American classic, and here’s one you can easily make yourself at home. It won’t take you long and you’ll know exactly what’s in it.

ingredients

• ¾ pound lean ground beef or turkey (10 % fat)
• 1 yellow onion, peeled and diced
• 1 green bell pepper, cored seeded and diced
• ¾ cup tomato purée
• 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
• 1½ tablespoons light brown sugar
• 1 tablespoon honey
• 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
• ½ teaspoon chile powder
• ½ 15-ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
• freshly ground pepper, to taste


1. Put a large sauté pan over a medium heat and crumble in the beef or turkey. Fry until the meat starts to brown then add the bell pepper and onion. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the veggies start to soften – this should take around 5 to 10 minutes.

2. When the veggies are tender, add the tomato purée and stir into the meat, then add the vinegar, brown sugar, honey, mustard and chile powder to the pan and give everything a really good stir. Add the beans, season with salt and pepper, then bring to a boil and cook until the sauce is nice and thick.

3. To serve: pile the Sloppy Joe mix onto the bottom of a bun or middle of a wrap, top it with lettuce and close up the sandwich or roll up the wrap.

Serving suggestions:
Delicious served with an Everyday chopped green salad or some Brilliant broccoli.

It won’t take you long and you’ll know exactly what’s in it.Jamie’s top tips• Look out for ground beef with around 10% fat – if buying turkey, try to buy the best quality you can afford. Don’t buy poor-quality turkey mince. If your grocery store has a meat counter you can ask them to grind the meat for you.• This can be made completely ahead of time and reheated just before serving. If you’re reheating Sloppy Joes, add water a little bit at a time to loosen.• If you want to give it a bit of a kick add some more chile powder or even a chopped fresh chile.For serving:4 whole wheat hamburger buns or whole wheat wraps1 cup shredded lettuce1.
