Healthy "Sloppy" Joe Pita with Coleslaw
This is for the new and improved “Joe” out there. Pocket pita “Joe” is easy to make, easy to eat, a little bit fancy, hearty, cozy, delicious, and healthy.
Servings: 4 servings
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 3 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 3-4 cloves minced garlic OR ¾ teaspoon of garlic powder
- 12 oz precut coleslaw mix (I use *Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw-The Original)
**If you're grating coleslaw mix from scratch I use this recipe!
- ½ large carrot (grated)
- ½ large broccoli tree
- ¼ head red cabbage
Preheat your oven to 325º so it is ready to heat up your naan/pita bread. (Skip this step if you have a toaster oven).
Begin with 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat and add a diced onion. Allow the onion to sauté for about a minute.
Then add in your ground turkey (or beef). Cook until browned and continually stir to cook the meat evenly.
Next, add in Worcestershire, red wine vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar and water.
Reduce heat and occasionally stir while it simmers for 8-10 minutes.
I like to add carrots and broccoli to create an extra crunch that complement the cabbage coleslaw as well. I either grate red cabbage, carrot and broccoli OR take the shortcut and buy Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw.
Set your coleslaw base aside and take out a baking sheet for your naan/pita
bread. Put your bread on the ungreased sheet and place it in the oven
to warm for about 2 minutes.
Add olive oil, rice wine vinegar, minced garlic (or garlic powder as a substitute) and salt your crunchy coleslaw dressing. Whisk together until well blended and combine with grated ingredients.
