Dish type
Main Dish


  • 1 lb. Ground Beef (96% lean)
  • 1 cup Chopped yellow, green or red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup Finely chopped onion
  • 1 can or bottle (12 oz.) Our Family 100% vegetable juice
  • 2 Tbsp. Our Family light brown sugar (lightly-packed)
  • 1 Tbsp. Our Family Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Whole wheat hamburger buns, split (Brownberry Whole Grain 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Buns)


  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.
  2. Stir in vegetable juice, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 7 to 9 minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated and thickens slightly, stirring occasionally.
  3. Evenly place beef mixture on bottom half of each bun; close sandwiches.
