My Manwich copy cat recipe. Very easy to duplicate, and tastes better and fresher. Probably not cheaper (due to the fresh produce), but excellent eats nonetheless.

2 tbsp Olive Oil (EV)
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 green bell pepper (or a whole one if small), chopped fine
1 16 oz. can tomato sauce
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
few tbsp mustard
few tbsp ketchup
1 1/4 lbs. ground meat
Warm the oil on medium low, add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes. Do NOT let the garlic brown or burn as it will throw the taste of the entire recipe.
Add worcestershire sauce and green pepper and bring to simmer. As soon as this begins to simmer, add tomato sauce, spices. Bring to simmer then add mustard and ketchup to taste, initially add approximately 2-3 tbsp ketchup, 2-3 tbsp mustard (color to change to a slightly orange shade).
Allow to simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally while you prepare ground meat. When meat is ready (and drained), add sauce, stir together, serve on buns.
Make sure you have more than 1 lbs. meat since this recipe yields more sauce than would be in a 16 oz. can of Manwich.
Increase meat to make it less sloppy.
Bold & Spicy: Try adding cayenne pepper and/or a few dashes of hot sauce. Or substitute ketchup for your favorite barbecue sauce.
