Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 4-6 servings

2 pounds ground beef (half ground chuck and half ground sirloin if possible)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup diced onion
¼ cup finely diced green bell pepper
½ cup finely shredded carrot
¼ cup finely minced celery
2 garlic cloves passed through garlic press
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon Colman’s dry mustard powder
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 14-ounce can pureed tomatoes
2 teaspoons chili powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
Bulkie rolls for serving

1.In a 14-inch skillet or cast iron pan, sauté ground beef over medium heat until cooked. Remove from heat and pour into a strainer catching liquid. Let the fat rise to the top of the liquid, reserve just one tablespoon of the fat and all of the liquid. The liquid that the beef gives off will be used later along with the one tablespoon of fat.
2.In the same pan over medium heat, add the olive oil, onions, peppers, carrot and celery and sauté four minutes. Add garlic and sauté for one more minute. Add tomato paste and cook for another minute.
3.Add all other ingredients including cooked beef, reserved liquid and fat. Stir to combine.
4.Cook over medium heat for ten minutes to incorporate flavors, stirring often. Remove from heat and serve on bulkie rolls or your favorite burger bun.
