Ingredients

  • 1 Teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 Pound ground beef
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 Cup ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Kaiser rolls, toasted

Directions

Add the oil to a pan over medium high heat, add the beef, and break up with a wooden spoon.

Continue to break the meat into small pieces; add salt, pepper, garlic powder, onions, and peppers. Mix until well combined.

Stir the meat occasionally for 8 to 10 minutes making sure all sides are browned. The meat is done when there is no pink in the larger chunks of ground beef.

Stir in the tomato sauce, ketchup, and Worcestershire sauce. Let the mixture thicken for 5 to 10 minutes.

Spoon ground beef mixture into buns and serve!

Ground Beef Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Ground Beef Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
