Preparation Time: 15 minutes

– 1 lb ground beef

– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
– 1 tsp smoked paprika

– Salt and pepper to taste
– 4 hoagie rolls
– 4 slices of provolone cheese

– In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef until browned, breaking it up into small pieces with a spatula as it cooks. Add the diced onion and minced garlic and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, until the onions are soft and translucent.
– Add the ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Stir to combine and let the mixture simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and the flavors have melded together.

– Slice the hoagie rolls in half and place them on a baking sheet. Spoon the meat mixture onto the bottom half of each roll. Top each sandwich with a slice of provolone cheese.
– Bake the sandwiches in the oven for 5-7 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is lightly toasted.
– Remove the sandwiches from the oven and top with sliced pickled jalapeños and a dollop of mayonnaise, if desired.
– Serve hot and enjoy
