SOLE Sloppy Joes

18 May

In the spirit of my last post, I will completely abandon my cookbooks.

Trust me, this doesn’t need directions.

How can the sloppy joe be SOLE food you ask?

Simple.  Organic ground beef, locally made bread, and sloppy joe sauce made right here in the good old state of PA by a family-owned company.

Yeah, if you’re from Pittsburgh you’ve seen their commercial.  Emphasis on multi-generational family-owned business; horrible acting.  Similar to the commercial I recently starred in for Changin’ Time.

“We’ll save YOU a lot of money!”  Okay, okay lets be serious.

Not too shabby.  We got exactly 6 sloppy joes out of this, so the nutrition facts ended up being realistic to actual portion size.  How does this compare to Manwich?  Delgrosso has slightly higher caloric level and slightly more more sugar.  However, it is lower in sodium than Manwich.

Ready for it?

NO PRESERVATIVES and gluten free (I don’t really know too much about gluten, but yay for people who need it!).

See those ingredients?  I know all of them.  And they are located in Tipton, PA.  105 miles away, so yes I would consider that part of our regional foodshed.

Manwhich ingredient list (source): Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Distilled Vinegar, Corn Syrup, Less than 2% of: Salt, Sugar, Dehydrated Onions, Dehydrated Red and Green Bell Peppers, Chile Pepper, Tomato Fiber, Spices, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Dehydrated Garlic, Carob Bean Gum, Natural Flavors.

Yeah, 30 calories and a little sugar isn’t going to change my mind now.  I have no idea what most of those ingredients are, let alone what they will do to my organs.

Bonus Fact:  There is a Delgrosso Amusement Park. Randommmmmmmm.

Mock all you want, this sloppy joe is SOLE and so worth it.

Besides, Delgrosso Sloppy Joe Sauce was 10/$10 at Giant Eagle last week.  So this entire meal cost next to nothing.

♥ This meal really is SOLE for my soul ♥
