Pizza Joes

Sloppy joes have always been one of my favorite
foods. In my opinion, they are awesome. So, when
I came upon this recipe for the pressure cooker,
I just had to try it. Also, it combines two of my favorite
 things, sloppy joes and pizza.

Als, now that I have to be gluten free (doctor's orders), I still get
 to have Sloppy joes and pizza without the bun or crust.
Yum, yum! Plus, if you are following a low-carb
diet, it is a great recipe for you as well.

I found this recipe in this book:

I love Bob Warden's cookbooks for pressure cookers.
They are easy to follow and he has some great recipes.

I also made this in my Cook's Essential Electric Pressure Cooker.

I have both types of pressure cookers - electric and stovetop.
However, I love my electric one. It my opinion, it is easier to use
 and I don't worry about it as much as with the stovetop model.

If you do not have an electric pressure cooker, I am
sure you can convert it for the stovetop models.

Pizza Joes

1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 lb lean ground beef
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 (16 oz) jar chunky spaghetti sauce
1/2 c finely diced green bell pepper
24 slices pepperoni, chopped
12 hamburger buns
Grated parmesan cheese

With cooker's lid off, heat oil on High or brown,
until sizzling.

Place ground beef, onion and garlic powder in
the cooker

Cook until ground beef is lightly browned, about 7 minutes.

NOTE - I drained the fat after this step.
The recipe does not state this, but I did to reduce
some of the fat.

Add the spaghetti sauce and bell pepper.

Securely lock the pressure cooker's lid.
Set the cooker for 8 minutes on HIGH.
Perform a quick release to release the pressure.

Stir pepperoni into the mixture.

Spoon onto hamburger buns.
Top with a generous amount of grated Parmesan cheese.

I personally liked what my men did for their joes.
They took crescent rolls and spooned the mixture 
over top. The book also says you could spoon the mixture
over garlic bread as well. Since I could not have the bread,
I put mine in a bowl. It was just as good as if on a bun.

Hope you enjoy!

Love to you all from the
