Sloppy Joes with Grilled Carrot and Salad

Recipe from Acme Farms and Kitchen.

For the carrots:

1 bunch carrots, greens trimmed to 1/2″

2 tbsp butter or ghee melted

1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Heat grill to medium

Whisk together butter or olive oil and vinegar. Arrange carrots on the grill and brush butter mixture over the carrots. Grill for 15-20 minutes turning halfway through and applying more of the butter mixture.

When done, pile into a serving plate and brush on the remaining butter mixture.

For the sloppy joes:

1 tbsp oil

1 onion, finely diced

2 green peppers, cored and finely diced

1 tsp minced garlic

salt and pepper

1 lb ground beef

1 15 oz can tomato sauce

1/4 cup ketchup or tomato paste

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and add onion, bell pepper and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook stirring frequently until vegetables are softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

Add ground beef to skillet and season with salt. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until it is no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes.

Stir in the tomato sauce and ketchup or tomato paste into beef mixture in skillet. Simmer until thickened, 6 to 8 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired. Serve in lettuce leaves or with just a green salad on the side.
