Sloppy Janes Recipe | PBS Food


Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 cup canned tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns


  1. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the onion and chili powder. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, sugar, and vinegar, and simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, breaking up the meat with a spoon, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide mixture among the hamburger buns and serve.
