Equipment

  • 1 Spatula
  • 1 Veggie chopper or cutting board + knife
  • 1 Small Mixing Bowl
  • 1 baking sheet

Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb. lean ground beef I ued 96/4
  • 1 tbsp. hamburger seasoning
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 4 low-carb hamburger buns I recommend Arnold’s or Royo, code TAMI10 saves you
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • cooking spray

For sauce

  • 2 tbsp light mayo
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp pickle juice

Instructions
 

  • Spray a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Add ground beef, breaking it up into small pieces with a spatula or meat spoon, allow to cook for 7-8 minutes, or until no longer pink. Drain.
  • Add hamburger seasoning to ground beef, stirring until meat is coated, then add chopped onions to skillet.
  • Allow onions to cook for 3-4 minutes, or until they begin to soften.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, dijon mustard, and beef broth to the skillet. Allow to simmer on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes or until the liquid begins to thicken.
  • While mixture is simmering, assemble the sauce. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the ketchup, yellow mustard, light mayo, and pickle juice, stirring until well combined. Set aside.
  • Split 4 buns in half, laying all parts on a large baking sheet. Turn the oven on to low broil and toast buns for 2-3 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven.
  • Spread burger sauce evenly across all 8 burger buns (tops & bottoms).
  • Once meat mixture is ready, scoop onto the bottom bun of all 4 burgers ~110 grams per bun.
  • Top meat with 1 slice of American cheese and a handful of shredded lettuce.
  • Apply top bun to bottom bun and enjoy!

Notes

The cheese should melt if your meat mixture is still hot while serving, if not, you can either microwave for a few seconds or put back into the oven on broil until the cheese melts.
If you’re not eating all servings at once, store the meat mixture in an airtight container and put the sloppy joes together right before serving to avoid soggy buns.
