Slop Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp MDP's Seasoning
1 medium onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups tomato sauce
2 tablespoons tomato paste

In a skillet, cook meat until browned. Drain as well as possible to remove the grease and add brown sugar and seasoning. Stir until combined well, and add onion, pepper, and bay leaf. Cook about 5 minutes until vegetables are soft. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until bubbling over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook another 10 minutes. If this is for a crowd, you can easily double or triple the recipe and scoop it into a crock pot to keep warm.

Serve on whole wheat buns, or on thick toast for an open faced sandwich. I love mine with some crunchy dill pickles!
