I'm not a big fan of messes, especially when it comes to my food. I was so excited to find this sloppy joe recipe that wasn't all that sloppy! Freezes well for up to 3 months.

Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Yields: 8 servings
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 chopped onion
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1/8 cup (2 Tbls.) ketchup
1/8 cup (2 Tbls.) barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
8 hamburger buns
1. Saute onion until in a large skillet until it begins to soften. Place ground beef in skillet with onion. Cook until evenly browned, stirring to crumble. Drain off any grease.
2. Stir the tomato soup (undiluted), ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce into the beef mixture. Season with salt and garlic powder. Heat to a simmer over low heat, and cook until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently to prevent it from burning on the bottom.
3. Spoon the hot beef mixture onto buns, which may be toasted first, and serve.
