This is the other way to enjoy ground beef on a bun, especially if you’ve got a couple of friends coming over for the game. Have some dill pickles and good cold beer on hand to wash it all down and help cheer for the home team.


  • 1 Pound Ground chuck or beef
  • 1 Onion , finely chopped
  • 2 Cloves Garlic , minced
  • 1 small can (14 oz) Tomato puree
  • 1 Dash Red wine vinegar
  • 1 Small Spoon Brown sugar or other sugar
  • 1 Small spoon Tomato paste
  • 1 Small spoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 4 hamburger or Kaiser rolls

prep / directions

autee beef in a skillet over medium high heat for 5 to 6 minutes, breaking the pieces up with a wooden spoon. Season with the salt and pepper and add onion and garlic, stirring for another 5 minutes. Then add the pureed tomatoes, sugar, vinegar, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and the water. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
