Fall’s a great time to enjoy this classic sandwich. Heck, any season’s a great time to enjoy it! Here’s Food Network star Ellie Krieger’s take.
BROWN meat and onion in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, breaking up meat into crumbles as it cooks. Pour drippings out of the pan and discard. Add garlic, jalapeno and red pepper and cook 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally. Stir in beans, tomato sauce, tomato paste, vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, salt and pepper, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes more.
PLACE a half-cup scoop of the mixture onto each bun and serve.Yield: 8 servings
