Serve this sauce on toasted, buttered buns or over pasta


  • 1 T butter
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar

Add butter to a large skillet or dutch oven over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook and stir until brown. Drain most of the fat off.

Add green pepper, onions, and garlic. Cook until they begin to soften.

Add the tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar.  Stir to combine and then simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

Spread the buns with butter and brown on a griddle or skillet.  Spoon the sauce onto the buns (we prefer ours open-faced) and serve.  The Sloppy Joe sauce will warm up well and freeze well.
