  • Remove from cast iron and add in beef.
  • Brown beef then drain once fully cooked.
  • Add the veggies and meat back into the pan.
  • Combine last 8 ingredients to the pan and stir around to make the sauce (honestly, I do eyeball most of this, so adjust to your taste!).
  • Serve on honey buns or any bun you’d like. You can also top with cheese!
