Super Sloppy Joes


  • 1 1/4 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon steak seasoning blend
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper chopped
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 8 rolls or buns toasted


  • Heat large skillet over medium high heat. Add meat to the pan and begin to break it up as it browns. When the meat has browned, drain the grease.
  • In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and steak seasoning. Stir the sugar and spice mixture into the meat. Reduce heat to medium and stir in onions, red pepper, red wine vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce with meat until the vegetables soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce and paste to skillet. Stir to combine well.
  • Reduce heat to simmer and cook Sloppy Joe mixture about 10 minutes longer, or until it has thickened quite a bit.
  • Pile sloppy meat onto toasted buns and enjoy!
