In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, breaking up pieces with a wooden spoon. Drain any fat, and add sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, fennel seed, oregano and thyme. Stir well to combine. Add onion and bell pepper and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until onion becomes fragrant. Add red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, tomato sauce and tomato paste.
