  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


  • 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, such as Colavita
  • ½ small onion, finely chopped
  • ½ green pepper, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped
  • 1 ¼ pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Montreal steak seasoning
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce*
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 crusty rolls, split in half, toasted


1. Heat evoo in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add onions and peppers, sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. 

2. Add beef to pan and cook until beef is browned, stirring frequently to break up the meat, about 5 minutes. Add brown sugar, steak seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Place rolls on a serving platter and distribute Sloppy Joe mixture evenly among the rolls.

*Using Worcestershire sauce in a meat dish in a kosher kitchen can be tricky because it contains anchovies. Look for a kosher certification mark which is not accompanied by a “fish” notation. That sauce can be used in a meat dish.
