Sloppy Joes - Part Deux

Never one to leave well enough alone, or remember something I did yesterday, I whipped up a new SJ recipe. It pretty much rocked and was super easy.
You're welcome.

1 lb ground meat (beef, turkey, whatever)
1 c onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 c green pepper, finely chopped
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp mustard
3/4 c ketchup
a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
brown sugar if needed - maybe a tsp

Toss a glug of olive oil into a pan over medium high and add the veggies. Saute until fragrant, then add the meat. Cook, breaking meat up into smaller bits until cooked through. At this point you can add the chili powder and a bit of salt as the meat cooks.
Drain off any fat from the meat, then add the Worcestershire, mustard, ketchup and brown sugar, and stir well to combine.

You can cover this and let it simmer for a bit, or go ahead and eat it right away if you're in a time crunch; it's pretty damn good right from the get go.
