Serves:

4 to 6

Prep:

40 Min

Cook:

10 Min

Ingredients

2 lb
lean ground beef
1
large green pepper
1
medium yellow onion
1 can(s)
tomato sauce
1 bottle
ketchup
1 bag(s)
sandwich buns

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Chop the green pepper and onion, place both in a large pot.
2
Add the ground beef to the pot and cook over medium-high heat until beef is no longer pink, and green pepper is softened, and onion is translucent. Drain the fat.
3
Add about 1/4 cup each tomato sauce and ketchup to beef mixture and stir well. Taste to see if if it needs more tomato sauce and/or ketchup. The taste should be a balance of the two, and the mixture should not be dry. The liquid will absorb. I generally use at least half the can of tomato sauce and about the same amount of ketchup. It's a taste as you go type of recipe.
4
Put the mixture back on about medium heat and let the sauce heat through. Turn heat to low, cover and serve on sandwich rolls.
