This recipe is not all that low in fat due to the hamburger but if you use lean or extra lean ground beef it will help reduce the fat content in it.
1 lb. lean or extra lean ground beef
1/2 green pepper, diced
1 onion, diced
2 celery ribs, diced
1 can (15-16 oz) stewed tomatoes or tomato sauce 1 teaspoon minced garlic
Optional: 1-2 teaspoons of sugar (this takes the acid out of the tomatoes)
1/4 cup of water
Put the extra lean ground beef, green pepper, onion and celery in a pan, and brown the meat. The vegetables will cook along with the meat.
Drain, then add the tomatoes or tomato sauce and minced garlic. If you like a sweeter less acidic sauce, add the sugar.
If you like a juicer sauce, add the water. You can let this simmer about 20 minutes.
You can double or triple the recipe, cook it in the pan or put it in a crock pot to simmer. Eat it on a bun and call it sloppy joe's.
