Homemade Sloppy Joes

• 1 1/2 pounds extra lean ground beef
• 1/2 onion, diced
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 green pepper, diced
• 1 cup water
• 3/4 cup ketchup
• 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar
• 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
• 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
• 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
• cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
