1 pound superlean ground beef or ground sirloin (I use ground Turkey)
1/2 cup chopped onion 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons ketchup…(I use No Sugar added)
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar…(Splenda Brown Sugar)
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper (add more to taste)
4 multigrain or whole-wheat hamburger buns or rolls
2 ounces shredded reduced-fat monterey
jack or cheddar cheese (optional)
Brown the ground beef or Turkey, onion, and green pepper over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet.
Stir in the ketchup, water, brown sugar, mustard, and garlic powder; mix thoroughly. Reduce the heat to simmer, cover, and let simmer for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so.
Add salt (if desired) and pepper to taste and stir. Serve one-fourth of the mixture over the bottom of a split multigrain bun or roll. Sprinkle each with a tablespoon or two of cheese, if desired. Serve with or without the top of the bun or roll.
- By using the Ground Turkey and No Sugar Added Ketchup and Brown Sugar Splenda it takes everything down a bit more but by how much i am not sure..
