Sloppy Joes!

These were so amazing last time that I had to make them again, although I changed a few things up :)  Amazing as ever!

1 lb ground hamburger
2 Tbsp Butter
3 Carrots (Peeled & Minced)
3 Garlic cloves (minced)
4 Mushrooms (minced)
2 Celery Stalks (Minced)
1 Tbsp Vinegar
1/2 Tbsp Crushed Red Pepper
1/2 Tbsp Thyme
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar Bourbon Grill Mate (or another great steak seasoning) 
1 tsp Fresh Basil (chopped)
1 tsp Fresh Oregano (chopped)
3 Tbsp Brown Sugar
3 Tbsp Tomato Paste
1/2 Cup Ketchup
1/2 Cup BBQ sauce (Carolina Honey for a sweeter version)
Brown the hamburger.  Drain and set aside.
In a separate pan add the Butter, minced carrots and garlic and saute' for 2-3 minutes.  Add the minced celery and cook for another minute.  Add the Vinegar and seasoning and cook for another minute or two to thoroughly season the veggies.  Add all remaining ingredients and thoroughly mix.  Add the hamburger to the mixture and simmer for about 15 minutes.  Sauce will be ready to serve.  Serve on your favorite bun, roll or bread for the best eating experience.
