Add butter to a sauté pan and melt.  Once melted, add 1 pound of thawed ground ostrich and cook thoroughly.  Due to the low-fat content of the ostrich, straining is not necessary!

Add red onion and green bell pepper and cook 2 minutes.  Add the minced garlic, 2 tbsp of tomato paste, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, and 1/2 cup ketchup.  Continue to stir while cooking.

Add brown sugar, yellow mustard, and worcestershire sauce.  If needed, add salt to taste and mix in the chili powder.  

Spread butter onto the insides of bun, toast on a hot griddle to a nice golden brown, and serve up those Slop, Sloppy Joes!
