Sloppy Joes

1 Tbs olive oil (or cover bottom of Dutch oven)

1-1/2 lbs ground beef

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tsp steak seasoning blend

1 medium onion, chopped

1 small red bell pepper, chopped

1 small green bell pepper, chopped

1 Tbs red wine vinegar

1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce

1/2 can tomato paste

4 crusty rolls

Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and meat to the pan. Combine brown sugar and steak seasoning. Add sugar and spice mixture to the skillet and combine. When the meat has browned, add onion and red peppers to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium and cook onions, peppers, red wine vinegar, soup, and Worcestershire sauce with meat for 5 minutes.

Add pizza sauce, mayonnaise, and tomato paste to meat mixture. Stir to combine. Reduce heat to simmer and cook Sloppy Joe mixture for about 15 minutes until reduced and thickened.

Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, pile sloppy meat onto toasted, buttered bun bottoms and cover with bun tops; or roll into flour tortillas with lettuce.
