Sloppy Joes

Sloppy Joes are a childhood staple. Or, if you were raised by hippies like I was, tempeh Sloppy Joes are a traumatizing memory. They are terrible, don’t ever make them. (Sorry vegan friends. Sometimes it's better to leave a good thing alone. Good news is, real ground meat Sloppy Joes are awesome and super easy to make on a busy weeknight. Enjoy this healthier version of what you ate as a kid!


2 cups Bill's Best BBQ Sauce

1lb ground, turkey, chicken, or beef

4 rolls (we like our philly bread sweet potato buns)

1 yellow onion

½ green cabbage, chopped or grated thinly

3 carrots, chopped or grated thinly

1 tablespoon sugar

¼ cup red vine vinegar or apple cider vinegar

¼ cup mayonnaise or veganaise

Salt and pepper to taste


Sauté onion until translucent (about 5 minutes).

Add ground meat and cook completely (it should be slightly browned).

Add Bill's Best BBQ Sauce and stir until meat is coated.

In a large bowl, combine salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar and mayo (you can omit the mayo if you prefer a non-creamy slaw). Mix until all ingredients are well combined.

With a grater, food processor or, carefully, a knife, very thinly slice cabbage and carrots. Add cabbage and carrots (and collard greens if using) and toss with sauce until fully coated. This can be done up to a day before and refrigerated.

Slice rolls. Add as much meat as you would like and top with coleslaw or serve it on the side.
