Sloppy Joes From Scratch

After watching one episode of 'Throwdown with Bobby Flay', I got inspired to make homemade Sloppy Joes.  This is the only recipe I have used to do so because it's addicting.  The recipe is kind of involved, but totally worth it in the end!

2 Tbs Vegetable Oil
1 Large Diced Onion
1 Small Red Pepper- Trimmed, Seeded, and Diced
4 Large Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tsp Dried Marjoram
2 lbs Ground Beef
3- 8 oz cans Tomato Sauce
3 Tbs Sugar
3 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbs Red Wine Vinegar
1 1/2 Tbs Yellow Mustard
Salt and Pepper

In a large saute pan, heat oil over medium low heat, add onions, saute for 5 minutes.  Add peppers and cook for 5 minutes more.  Stir in garlic and marjoram, continue to cook for 2 minutes more.  Transfer vegetables to a bowl with slotted spoon and set aside.  Add meat to pan and increase heat to medium and cook about 5 minutes.  Discard excess fat.  Combine meat and vegetables with tomato sauce, sugar, worcestshire, vinegar, and mustard.  Bring mixture to a simmer, cover, and cook 20 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  They taste best on soft hamburger buns!
