Sloppy Joes

A little bit more time consuming than just opening a jar, but well worth the effort.  You can also substitute ground turkey for the beef.

6 oz. Tomato Paste
1 lg. Onion, diced
4 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. Butter
½ C. Dry Red Wine
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire
1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar
2 Carrots, Diced
1 Celery Stalk, Diced
1 ½ Pd. Ground Chuck
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Cumin
Kaiser Rolls

Melt butter in large skillet. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic. Sauté until softened. Add beef. Cook until browned, breaking into small pieces. Add chili, cumin, salt and pepper. Add tomato paste, wine, Worcestershire and sugar. Simmer until thick. Serve on Kaiser Rolls.
