This is what you do

Spray a nonstick frying pan with your canola oil spray, and brown the lean ground beef, and get rid of the fat.

Put the buns on the respective plates.

In the frying pan, mix in the rest of the ingredients well with the meat, and simmer for about 30 minutes or so. Don't cover.

Spoon over the buns and top with lettuce leaves and tomato slices.

That's your Sloppy Joes! Delicious, low in fat, and healthy.
