Not-So-Plain Jane Sloppy Joes

Recipe is originally from Hungry Girl (I think).

1 lb. raw extra-lean ground turkey
5 small hamburger buns
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped red bell peppers
1 cup canned tomato sauce
3/4 cup canned no-salt-added tomato sauce
2 tbsp. tomato paste
1 1/2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. dry steak seasoning blend
dash salt

Spray a large pan with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add turkey to the pan. Spread the meat around in the pan to break it up a bit.
In a small dish, combine Splenda, salt and steak seasoning. Sprinkle this mixture over the meat, and continue to stir meat in the pan. Once the meat has browned, reduce heat to medium.
Add onions, peppers, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar to the pan. Stir, and then continue to cook for 5 minutes.
Add tomato sauces and paste to the pan and stir well. Reduce heat to low, and cook the mixture for an additional 5 minutes.
Toast the buns, if desired. Put 1/5th of the mixture on each bottom bun, and then finish off with tops of the buns. 

DH and I decided we like this Sloppy Joes a lot better than other ones I've tried. While we're not big sloppy joe fans, this is quite tasty. Will make this again.
