  • 1 1/2 pounds extra lean ground beef
  • Bread rolls
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup water



  1. Place ground beef and onion in a large skillet. Turn heat to medium and cook and stir the mixture constantly until the beef is browned and forms small crumbles, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in garlic and green bell pepper; cook and stir until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1 cup water and stir, scraping the pan to dissolve any brown flavour bits from the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Mix in ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, mustard, salt, and black pepper. Add 1 more cup water and return mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated and the mixture is thick, about 40 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  5. Cut bread rolls into symmetrical halves
  6. Place the ground beef paste in between the bread rolls and serve.
