Sweet Barbecue Sandwiches

 Sweet Barbecue Sandwiches
I practically grew up on these sandwiches. Now I feed them often to my kids. Molasses and cinnamon are the secret ingredients to the filling's sweet success. - Rochelle Saeger, Shelton, Washington
10 ServingsPrep: 5 min. Cook: 30 min.


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 10 hamburger buns, split


  • In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the
  • meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the soup, tomato sauce,
  • Worcestershire sauce, molasses and seasonings; mix well. Cover and
  • simmer for 20 minutes. Serve on buns. Yield: 10 servings.
Before measuring molasses, coat the measuring spoon or cup with nonstick cooking spray--the molasses will slide right out with little mess.
