  • 1 large carrot
  • 10 oz lean ground beef
  • 3/4 c. prechopped onion
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. chili powder
  • 1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 t. tomato paste
  • 1 t. red wine vinegar

Preheat broiler.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. While the pan is heating, grate a carrot.

Add carrot, beef and onion to the pan; cook for six minutes or until beef is browned and vegetables are tender.

Add garlic powder, chili powder and pepper. Cook for one minute.

Combine 1/4 c. ketchup and the next five ingredients (through tomato sauce) in a small bowl. Add ketchup mixture to pan, stirring to evenly coat beef mixture.

Simmer for five minutes or until thickened.

While sauce thickens, arrange buns, cut side up in a single layer on a baking sheet.

Broil two minutes or until lightly toasted.

Place about 1/4 c. beef mixture on bottom half of each of eight buns; top each slider with top half of bun.
