Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef (96% lean)
  • 1 cup chopped yellow, green or red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 can or bottle (12 ounces) 100% vegetable juice
  • 2 tablespoon lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split

Cooking:

  1. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef, bell pepper and onion; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking beef up into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160ºF. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.

  3. Evenly place beef mixture on bottom half of each bun; close sandwiches.
