2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 small red pepper, trimmed, deseeded and finely chopped
4 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp dried marjoram
900g minced beef (chuck steak preferred)
Three 225g tins tomato sauce
45g sugar
45ml Worcestershire sauce
30ml red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp mustard
190ml water
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 hamburger buns, toasted
1) In a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium-low heat, add the onions, saute for 5 minutes. Add the peppers and cook for 5 minutes more. Stir in the garlic and marjoram, continue to cook for 2 minutes more. Transfer vegetables to a bowl with a slotted spoon and reserve.

2) Add the meat to the pan, increase the heat to medium, and cook the meat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until it just loses its colour, about 5 minutes. Pour excess fat from the pan and discard.

3) Combine the meat and vegetables in the pan along with the tomato sauce, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard, and 125ml of the water. Bring the mixture to a simmer, cover, and cook for 20 minutes. (If the mixture appears to be too dry add the additional water.) Season with the salt and pepper to taste.

4) When ready, divide the mixture evenly between the buns and serve.
