Course: Main Dish
Servings: 4 servings, 2 sandwiches per serving


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2-2 1/2 teaspoons steak seasoning (I use a Mrs. Dash steak seasoning)
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 8 hamburger buns
  • sliced Muenster cheese optional
  • sliced pickles to garnish


  • Cook the ground beef, breaking it into bite-size chunks as it browns. Drain.
  • While the beef is browning, combine the brown sugar and steak seasoning in a small bowl. After draining the meat, add the brown sugar mixture. Combine.
  • Add the tomato sauce, Worchestershire sauce, and red wine vinegar. Combine. Simmer the meat mixture for 3-5 minutes or until it's thickened slightly.
  • Serve on hamburger buns or the buns of your choosing with sliced Muenster cheese, sliced pickles, and any other toppings you like.
