Ingredients

  • 1 lb raw lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp dry steak seasoning blend
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 3/4 cups canned crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp granulated white sugar
  • 5 light hamburger buns
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Directions

Spray a large skillet with nonstick spray and bring to medium-high heat. Add turkey and sprinkle with steak seasoning and salt. Cook and crumble for about 8 minutes, until mostly cooked.

Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, bell pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar. Mix well, and cook and crumble for 5 minutes, or until meat is fully cooked.

Reduce heat to low. Add crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and sweetener or sugar. Cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes.

Toast buns, if desired. Evenly distribute the mixture among the bottom buns, and then finish off with the tops of the buns. Enjoy!
