Step 1

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and red pepper and cook for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for 2 more minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Step 2

Add the ground beef or turkey and season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned, using a wooden spoon to break up the beef or turkey. Stir in the tomato paste, brown sugar, smoked paprika, and chili powder.

Step 3

Stir in the tomato sauce, apple cider vinegar, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring often.

Step 4

Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. You can add more salt and pepper, more brown sugar if you want it a little sweeter, or more chili powder or crushed red pepper flakes, if you want it spicier.

Step 5

To serve, spoon mixture onto toasted buns. Serve immediately.
