20 minutes

  • 1 lb. raw lean ground turkey
  • 1 tsp. steak seasoning blend, dry
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup canned tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup canned no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 5 small hamburger buns (light, if available)


Spray a large skillet with nonstick spray and bring to medium-high heat on the stove. Add turkey and sprinkle with steak seasoning and salt. Cook and crumble for about 8 minutes, until mostly cooked.

Reduce heat to medium. Add onion, bell pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar. Mix well and continue to cook and crumble for about 5 minutes, until meat is fully cooked.

Reduce heat to low. Add tomato sauces, tomato paste, and sugar. Stir well. Stirring occasionally, cook until hot, about 5 minutes.

Toast the buns, if desired. Evenly distribute the mixture among the bottom buns and then finish off with the tops of the buns. Enjoy!
