Have a couple of lbs of ground beef and need to get supper on the table? Sloppy Joes will make everyone happy! I love to make this when I'm in a rush and out of ideas. For me, it brings back memories of growing up in the 90s so I just love it.
You could serve this on a bun with sweet potato fries or even just potato chips and a pickle (of course). I bet you could have dinner on the table in under thirty minutes, all with items you likely have laying around.

2 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, minced
1 tsp minced garlic
1 diced green bell pepper
2 lbs Evridge Farms ground beef
1 can tomato sauce (15 oz)
1 Tbsp tomato paste
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
4-6 buns or bread
Heat olive oil in large skillet. Add onion and bell pepper-saute until softened. Add garlic and cook another minute or so. Salt and pepper to taste.
Add ground beef, break up and cook until nicely browned. Drain fat if you’d like. I usually leave about half because it makes the flavor yummy.
Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and mustard. Simmer, uncovered, until heated through and slightly thickened, about 5-8 minutes.
Scoop into buns and serve!
