Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    pounds lean ground beef

  • 1

    cup chopped onion

  • 1

    clove garlic, minced

  • 1

    6 ounce can vegetable juice

  • 1/2

    cup catsup

  • 1/2

    cup water

  • 2

    tablespoons no-calorie, heat-stable granular sugar substitute

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped, canned jalapeno peppers (optional)

  • 1

    tablespoon prepared mustard

  • 2

    teaspoons chili powder

  • 1

    teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 8

    whole wheat hamburger buns, split and toasted

  • Shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (optional)

  • Sweet pepper strips (optional)

Directions

1. In a large skillet cook ground beef*, onion, and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender. Drain off fat. *TIP: You can substitute lean ground turkey (at least 93 percent lean, or 93/7) in place of ground beef. 2. Meanwhile, in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine vegetable juice, catsup, water, sugar substitute, jalapeno peppers (if desired), mustard, chili powder, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in meat mixture. 3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 6 to 8 hours or on high-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours. Spoon meat mixture onto bun halves. If desired, sprinkle with cheese and serve with sweet pepper strips. Makes 8 servings
