Greek Sloppy Joes Recipe

Greek Sloppy Joes Recipe

I always loved the taste of feta cheese. I did not want just to do a meat patty with feta inside, so I came up with this sloppy joe version. —Sonya Labbe, West Hollywood, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups chopped romaine
  • 6 kaiser rolls, split and toasted
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain. Stir in tomato sauce and oregano. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 8-10 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • 2. Place romaine on roll bottoms; top with meat mixture. Sprinkle with feta cheese; replace tops.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary. Yield: 6 servings.

"It was good but I'm ot sure that I would make them again. Both my kids turned their noses up despite loving feta cheese. My son did end up eating a small bowl of the meat and cheese, but no one raved about them. The only change I made was ground turkey in place of ground beef. My husband I thought they were a little bland."

"This was very easy and a nice change of pace from regular sloppy joes. The Greek flavor is subtle though, so add more seasonings and feta if you desire a prominent Greek flavor. We used turkey instead of beef, and added a pinch of cinnamon."

"Not a lot of Greek flavor to this, other than the feta. Next time, I would add Greek seasoning to make it stand out from other sloppy joe recipes. It was easy to make, and did taste good."

"I made this because I happened to have the ingredients and it seemed simple. This was very easy and quick but it was also excellent. I added a dash of hot pepper sauce and a tsp of brown sugar."

"This was a great weeknight meal, which only took about 20 minutes to prepare from start to finish. The feta cheese is what makes this for me - otherwise I tend to agree that it tastes like spaghetti sauce. Next time I'll add some garlic and maybe some souvlaki seasoning to amp up the Greek flavor. Still a great base recipe to keep as is or make it your own!"

"Not a keeper. Tasted like spaghetti with meat sauce on a bun, so the feta did very little to the overall taste."

"This was great. It was a bit too much tomato sauce. I added more garlic and pepper. Very tasty. Very easy!"

"Pretty good. I used a pre-made (homemade) pizza sauce instead of the tomato sauce and oregano, which made it even simpler, if that were possible. The feta is a nice touch."
