1 pound ground beef (96% lean)
1 cup chopped yellow, green, or red bell pepper
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 can or bottle (12 ounces) 1005 vegetable juice
2 tablespoons lightly-packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
Heat a 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.
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.
Evenly place beef mixture on bottom half of each bun; close sandwiches.
