Description

A touch of cola adds depth and a hint of sweetness to these that you just have to try!

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Regular Soda
  • 2 teaspoons Light Brown Sugar
  • 8 ounces, weight No Salt Added Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • 2 teaspoons White Distilled Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 pinch Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 cup Red Pepper Finely Chopped
  • ½ cups White Onion, Diced
  • 1 pound Lean Ground Beef
  • 4  Buns Or Rolls

Preparation

In a small saucepan, bring cola and brown sugar to a boil over medium-high heat and boil, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved and liquid reduces to about 1 cup, about 10 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

In a small bowl, add cooled soda, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, vinegar, mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper and whisk until blended. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add peppers and onions and cook until slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Add in beef and cook thoroughly. Drain any excess grease.

Stir in sauce and continue to cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until sauce thickens, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat and serve on rolls.

Notes: Try serving the sauce over pasta like elbow noodles or orrechiette. These are also great served on garlic toast instead of rolls.
