Cabbage Sloppy Joes

This is a recipe I found in my stash of clipped-out Taste of Home magazine recipes. I had everything on hand so it was super simple! This is pretty much your basic sloppy joe recipe but with cabbage added. I knew that I would like them since I have no problem with cabbage or even saurkraut. And, I thought maybe the flavor might resemble Bierocks (or Runzas, depending on where you're from) and we all love those! Well, these joes turned out great AND everybody else loved them too. I don't think anyone, including me, could even tell there was cabbage in them. It didn't hurt that we ate them on yummy onion rolls and *maybe* added some cheese on top. Anyway, here's my recipe, slightly altered from the original.

Cabbage Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground turkey
1.5 cups finely shredded cabbage
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 celery rib, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped

1 cup ketchup
2 T brown sugar
2 T lemon juice
1 T vinegar
1 T worcestershire sauce
1 T yellow mustard
1/2 t pepper
salt to taste (I added none)

In a large skillet cook meat and veggies over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink. Combine sauce ingredients in a small bowl then add to meat mixture. Simmer 10 -15 minutes. Spoon onto rolls.

I served them with sides of corn on the cob and raw carrots & cukes in (light) ranch dip. It was a good no-frills dinner.
