Recipe is from a magazine called Gourmet Quick Kitchen and I pretty much left it alone except that I removed a lot of salt in various steps.The cc calorie calculator takes in to account the saute butter which you will mostly drain off, so there really is fewer calories than indicated. It is possible it would be fine with 1 T olive oil instead. The analyzer also lists more sodium than I think it has because I drained off the juices of the canned tomatoes. This is incredibly tasty, company impressive, and easy. Eat on a maintenance day if you worry about the fat or cut more calories by eating only a half sandwich with a large salad and oven fries. 1/2 would really be enough as I am quite stuffed to the gills after eating one.

Recipe Ingredients for Jannid's Sophisto Joes

15 oz can tomatoes, drained
1/2 c wine, red, dry
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1/2 small onion
4 t garlic, chopped
2 T butter
1 medium carrot, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 1/2 lb ground beef, chuck, very lean
1 T chili powder
1 t cumin, ground
1 1/2 T brown sugar, packed
6 Kaiser rolls, split

Recipe Directions for Jannid's Sophisto Joes

  1. Drain the tomato water from the can and place the tomatoes in a bowl. Squish with your hands til you end up with a rough puree consistency. Mix in the wine and Worcestershire sauce and set aside.

  2. In a 12 inch deep skillet, melt the butter over medium high heat, add the onion, stir occasionally until the onion is clear and starting to brown (5 minutes or so), add garlic and saute for another couple minutes, add the carrot and celery and sprinkle with a small amount of coarse ground sea salt. Saute for another five minutes or so til the veges are cooked.

  3. Add the ground chuck, stir and break up into small pieces as it cooks. When cooked through, drain off the fat. Stir in the chili powder and cumin, add a little fresh cracked pepper and stir another two minutes.

  4. Add the tomato wine Worcestershire mix and the brown sugar. Bring to a boil, stir occasionally until the sauce reduces - at least 6 minutes.

  5. Serve on the kaiser rolls which as I said are quite huge and 1/2 of one is quite a large serving especially when served with a side of oven roasted potato wedges and a leafy green salad.
