Onion Joes

My friend, Bettie, shared the Packwood Community Cookbook from Packwood, Iowa – she pointed out this recipe from Mrs. Dwain Sutton that she had tasted and enjoyed.
 This is the Sloppy Joe for folks who don’t like as much tomato, like my husband. We enjoyed this for lunch today; on homemade Onion Buns with homecanned  Corn Relish.  It made about 6 medium buns. I would think about starting to heat the sauce in my small slow cooker while I browned the hamburger, and then combine it and keep it warm for a company meal. Add a salad and dessert and you’re set.
Is this a canning project?? Maybe.  It doesn't take long to make, but heating and eating may be really good too.
Onion Burgers
1 Pound Hamburger -- crumbled
1 Can Condensed Onion Soup
1 Tablespoon Catsup
1 Tablespoon Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 Teaspoon A-1® Steak Sauce
1 Teaspoon Heinz 57 Sauce
Salt and Pepper -- to taste
Brown meat and drain any fat. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 5 - 10 minutes.


  1. You are making my mouth water and it's only 2:30 pm - not time for dinner yet! Looks delicious!!!

  2. I'll have to try this version. The only way I make Sloppy Joes for my sons is with Chicken Gumbo Soup. It's 1.5 pounds of ground beef, 1 can Chicken Gumbo Soup, 1/2 c. barbecue sauce, 1/3 c. ketchup, and some onion (I use a tablespoon of dried). I brown the burger, drain, and then add the rest and let it simmer for 20 to 30 minutes (however long it takes for the Tator Tots to cook).


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
