2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 kg Beef, top sirloin (ground)
1/2 cup packed Brown sugar
4 tsp Barbecue seasoning, McCormick
1 medium White onion (chopped)
1 small pepper(s) Red bell pepper (chopped)
2 tbsp Red wine vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
4 cup Tomato sauce, canned
4 tbsp Tomato paste, canned
8 bun(s) Bun, gluten free


Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add oil and meat to the pan.

Spread the meat around the pan and begin to break it up.

In a medium-sized bowl, combine brown sugar and Barbecue 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 and Worcestershire sauce with meat for 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and paste to pan. Stir to combine.

Reduce heat to simmer and cook mixture 5 minutes longer.

Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, pile sloppy meat onto toasted, buttered bun bottoms and cover with bun tops.

Serve with your favourite sides or sliced tomatoes seasoned with salt and pepper, dill pickles and potato salad.

Cooking tip: Put a slice of cheddar on top of the meat in the sandwich and broil it for a few minutes in the oven to melt.
