  • 1
    Heat 10-inch skillet over medium heat. In large bowl, mix together beef and pork; add to skillet. Add onions, bell pepper, mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper; mix well. Cook, stirring frequently, until beef and pork are no longer pink and vegetables until tender.
  • 2
    Stir in marinara and barbecue sauces. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low to low; simmer 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened.
  • 3
    Serve beef-pork mixture in buns.

  • Any type of tomato pasta sauce can be substituted for the marinara sauce.
  • Chopping the vegetables in a food processor can save lots of time and make the vegetable pieces small enough that picky eaters may not even notice them.
