so ... do you really need a package?

the answer is no.  Sloppy Joes.  No package.

You will need:

ground meat
green peppers
any other yummy veg you want (I added mushrooms)

for the sauce:
vinegar 1 Tbsp
ketchup 1/4 cup or so
worchestershire sauce 1-2 tsp
sugar 1 tbsp or so
tomatoes (diced, paste, whole, whatever you have) I used a can of whole plum tomatoes that I chopped with my wooden spoon in the pan.

salt and pepper of course.

so, brown your ground beef and then saute your veg with the meat.

To make the sauce, you just add the above amounts to your meat and stir it around once the meat is cooked and the veg are saute'd , If you like more sauce, just double everything.  We like a little less sauce and stick with the above amounts for our recipe. 

let simmer for a bit.

that's all, it's hardly more work than a package!
