(ground beef sandwiches + sweet honey sauce)
What You Need:
1/3 cup tomato paste

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 pound ground chuck
½ cup chopped yellow onion

What to Do:

2. Make the sauce: Whisk together the tomato paste, honey, soy sauce, vinegar, and cornstarch in a small bowl. Set aside.
3. Brown the beef: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add the ground chuck, onion, and bell pepper. Cook until the beef is browned, and the vegetables are tender (about 6 to 8 minutes). Drain the beef mixture if needed.
