Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 sandwich buns, split
  • Fresh arugula, optional

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes; crumble the meat; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Top meat with arugula. Serve on buns.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary. Serve on buns with arugula if desired.
