School lunch from our childhood has really tarnished this poor sandwiches' image :). These sloppy joes are SO yummy and major comfort food for us here. Got this one from Rachel Ray years ago. Enjoy!
1 lb ground beef
1/4 C brown sugar
1 T steak seasoning blend, such as McCormick brand Montreal Seasoning
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small red bell pepper chopped
1 T red wine vinegar
1 T worcestershire sauce
2 C tomato sauce
2 T tomato paste
4 crusty rolls, split, toasted, and lightly buttered
Sharp cheddar cheese
Garnish: sliced ripe tomatoes, pickles
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Put meat into pan. Spread the meat around pan and begin to break it up. Combine brown sugar and steak seasoning. Add sugar and spice mixture to the skillet and combine. When meat has browned, add onion to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook onions, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce with meat for 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste to pan. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 5 minutes longer. Pile sloppy joe mix onto bun with a slice of cheese and sliced pickles. MmmmMmm good!!
