Mom's Sloppy Joes

My mom got this recipe when she was volunteering at my first grade field day. I still remember her asking for it from one of the other moms who was helping out. I loved it growing up, and it's an easy meal that everyone in our family gets excited about.

As Bob and I have compared notes with other friends, we have discovered that Utah has its own unique brand of sloppy joes. This is it in its basic form. Bob added garnishes of sliced red onion and pickle chips--we tried bread and butter pickles tonight, and they were especially good. We almost always also serve the joes with barbecue potato chips.

Mom's Sloppy Joes

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 T. yellow mustard
1 8-oz. can tomato sauce
1 can chicken gumbo soup
2 T. catsup½ t. chili powder

Break hamburger into small pieces and brown in a medium sauce pan. Add onion just before the hamburger is brown. Drain fat from hamburger mixture and return to pan. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Cook on low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring every ten minutes. Serve on hamburger buns.
