2 cups vegan “beef” crumbles (I use 1 bag of Boca crumbles)
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar or sweetener of choice
1/4 cup ketchup
about 12 ounces tomato sauce ( I use a bit more, about 3/4 of a 15 ounce can instead. However, you can measure this to your liking.)
1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce (I use Annie’s Naturals)
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
Not sure if you like garlic if you do use a little fresh garlic to taste I do.. but it is great without. I have also done some odd mixtures adding some leeks and mushrooms.. but not normally.
1) Cook the onion, green pepper, and “beef” crumbles in a large skillet until the veggies are tender and the crumbles are thoroughly cooked through. I cooked mine in a bit of oil, but you could probably cook it in a bit of water instead.
2) Add all the rest of the ingredients to the skillet. Mix together very well. Cover and let simmer for 10 to 20 minutes.
3) Serve on hamburger buns and enjoy!
These are sooo simple and cost affective to make!
