Sloppy Joes

This is a nice, basic sloppy joe recipe. It makes about 16 servings, so it's a great one to use when stocking up the freezer.


1 onion, finely chopped
2 pounds lean ground beef
15 oz can no salt added tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 T lemon juice
2 t Worcestershire sauce
1 t salt
1 t vinegar
1/2 t dry mustard

Cook onion in large non-stick skillet until soft. Add ground beef and cook through. Drain any fat. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer on low for about 20 minutes. Cool and freeze in two portions (I used old cool whip bowls, but freezer bags work fine as well). On serving day, thaw in microwave or on the stovetop in a saucepan.
