It's Eat Meat Monday and we're having a meal that can be made in a jiffy.  I like to search my pantry or fridge to find all kinds of goodies that would go well combined in the dish.  I don't think I've ever made this dish the same way twice.  But I've made it many times and this is what I came up with this time.


Chopped onion.....


Brown the ground beef........

Ooops, I forgot to toss the onions into the mix!  I'll just add them with the rest of the ingredients......

Add the ingredients and heat through..........

Brown the 100% Whole Wheat buns.......


1 pound of natural ground beef (or 2 lbs if your house is like mine)
1/2 onion chopped
1 15oz can of stewed tomatoes with oregano and basil
1 6oz can tomato paste
1 t chili powder
1T Worchestershire sauce
dash of hot sauce
2 T ketchup
1 t chopped garlic
salt and pepper to taste

In a large skillet cook meat, onion till meat is brown.  Drain off fat.  Stir in all other ingredients and bring to boil.  Reduce heat.  Simmer, uncovered for 5-10 minutes.

You can make this recipe your own, just add a can of corn, chopped sweet peppers or anything else that sounds good.


Happy Monday! Pin It
