super yummy sloppy joes

sloppy joes are great for parties and easy to whip together last minute. i prefer sloppy joes but i am a little picky about the flavor. i do not like too sweet or sweet at all really and i enjoy a little kick. 
here is my little twist on sloppy joes…

1 1/2 pounds of ground sirloin or ground turkey 
1 tablespoon olive oil 
1/4 cup brown sugar
2-3 tablespoons of your favorite steak seasoning 
2 cloves pressed garlic
1 medium onion chopped 
1 small red bell pepper 
1-2 tablespoons worcestshire sauce 
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 1/2 to 2 cups tomato sauce (depending on how sloppy you want them)
2 tablespoons tomato paste 
1/4 teaspoon or pinch of cayenne pepper (depends on taste)
crusty rolls (your favorite buns or rolls)

1. heat oil in a large skillet and add meat. break up the meat and continue to brown over medium-high heat. 

2. stir together the brown sugar and steak seasoning. add the sugar/steak seasoning mixture and press the garlic cloves into the meat and stir while meat continues to brown.

3. once the meat has browned, add the onions and red peppers. add the red wine vinegar, worcestershire to the mixture and continue to cook onions and peppers. 

4. add tomato paste and sauce to the pan, stir into the meat mixture let to simmer 5-10 minutes.
