I recently found out that my kids love sloppy joes and wanted to try a new recipe that was similar and came up with these Asian Sloppy Joes. These sloppy joes are loaded with lots of fresh veggies such as carrots, red peppers, green onion, garlic, celery and ginger and has a super tasty garlic-ginger-soy sauce. I sauté the vegetables in Mazola® Corn Oil. A clinical study showed Mazola® Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, visit MAZOLA.com.

How to Make Asian Sloppy Joes

First, I added Mazola® Corn Oil to a large skillet and sautéed the carrots, celery, onions, and bell peppers. Once those were cooked, I added in the lean ground beef and cooked it until it was cooked all the way through.

Venison, ground chicken or ground turkey would work as well. Then, I added in the ginger and garlic.

The sauce for these Asian sloppy joes is made of low-sodium soy sauce, tomato sauce, vinegar, and hoisin sauce. Then I added in the green onions at the end. The ginger, garlic and onions give a lot of flavor to the sauce as well. I served the Asian sloppy joes on whole-wheat buns and my kids loved it!

Nutrition in Asian Sloppy Joes

This dish is high in protein from the meat and high in fiber and vitamins and minerals from the veggies. The whole-wheat buns provide fiber and vitamins. It is a great balanced meal. We love pairing this meal with an Asian coleslaw or steamed or roasted broccoli.

Vegetables sauteed in corn oil

To sauté the veggies in, I used Mazola® Corn Oil. It is an all-purpose cooking oil that is heart healthy*. You can use it for grilling, baking, stir-frying or for a salad dressing. February is  Heart Health Month. I chose the leanest beef I could find and used tons of veggies!

It makes it simple to prepare a variety of easy and light meals. The American Heart Association advised that saturated fat in the diet should be reduced and replaced with polyunsaturated fats to reduce the risk of CVD by 30%. Corn oil is an example of a polyunsaturated fat that you can use.

Asian Sloppy Joes recipe

*Corn oil is cholesterol-free food that contain 14g of total fat per serving. See nutrition information on product label or at Mazola.com for fat and saturated fat content.

***Very limited and preliminary scientific evidence suggests that eating about 1 tablespoon (16 grams) of Mazola® Corn Oil daily may reduce the risk of heart disease due to the unsaturated fat content in Mazola® Corn Oil. FDA concludes that there is little scientific evidence supporting this claim. To achieve this possible benefit, Mazola® Corn Oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. One serving of this product contains 14 grams of Mazola® Corn Oil.
