It was a long day at work yesterday and I was just too tired to put any real effort into dinner. To add insult to injury the cupboard was pretty much bare. In the fridge I found an assortment of mushrooms and about a half a bottle of store bought barbecue sauce. Sounds like the making of a Sloppy Joe to me..
Joe's got nothing on this sandwich. What a simple yet satisfying meal. Perfect for a long day where you just don't have the energy to really cook. If you are feeling ambitious you could make your own barbecue sauce but I was just fine with the Memphis barbecue sauce in the fridge!
Sloppy Mushroom Sandwiches
6 oz portabella mushrooms, chopped
8 oz shitake mushrooms, chopped
6 oz brown pearl mushrooms, chopped
1/3 cup barbecue sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
In a saute pan heat olive oil and add mushrooms. Saute until mushrooms are tender and release their liquid. Continue to saute until liquid is somewhat evaporated and then add barbecue sauce and stir until barbecue sauce is warm.
Serve on a whole grain bun.
That;'s it! Pretty easy, huh!!
