    I live in Buffalo NY and am Polish. My mom used to make something called BBQd hamburgers. We also used to get them at some local Bingo Halls when I was very young.

    Although the name says BBQ Hamburgers, they did not taste like BBQ sauce but tasted more like a tomato sauce or even a tomato soup. They usually had onions cooked in the sauce.

    My mom is gone, so I cannot ask her for the recipe. The only recipes I've found online call for ingredients which make the hamburgers taste like they are cooked in BBQ sauce. I found one which uses ketchup and worchestershire and sugar and this is definitely not what I'm looking for.

    Does anyone have a recipe for the type of BBQ hamburger I'm looking for? I believe the bingo hall which served this was Ukranian if that helps.

    Thanks in advance.

    I see you haven't had any replies to your post and I'm afraid I won't be much help. I have been looking for a recipe for what we called "Barbecues" for about 40 years. Have tried many, many recipes and only two have come even close to what I'm looking for. They are:

    Coney Sauce
    1/2 # ground beef
    1/4 cup onion, chopped
    1 8oz can tomato sauce (I found this to be too much and made a note to use about 1/2 the amount)
    1/2 - 3/4 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 cup water
    1 clove garlic, minced
    Brown beef slowly, breaking with a fork til fine. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer 10 minutes.

    And from this site, Mild Mexican Ground Beef

    I sincerely wish you good luck in your quest. I hope it doesn't take more than 40 years for you to find what you want.

    I looked for a while yesterday and didn't get anywhere either--I can only suggest you post to a Ukrainian site and ask for help, whether it's within Recipezaar, or elsewhere. I am fortunate perhaps that I never had habitual foods to try to chase down that weren't family foods.
    Here's the area within zaar to post your request--and the more specific you are the more likely someone can help. icon_smile.gif

    We make a bbq recipe two differnt was but same sauce. Do you use ground minced beef as is, or do you want one with pre frying patties, and then placed into the sauce. This is our sauce recipe
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 tablespoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon celery seed or use only 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
    2 cans Heinz tomato soup condensed 10 ounce size cans
    1/2 can cold water
    1 teaspoon or less of regular table salt or season salt
    1/3 cup of white vinegar
    Combine all into a large measure cup and mix well.
    Remove your pre cooked hamberuger patties from frying pan.
    Add in one large spanish onion sliced thin into pan and pan fry scraping up the brown beef bits from bottom of pan.
    Add the sauce mixture and scrape the brown bits from pan and bring all to a simmer.
    Add in the precooked hamburger patties, and simmer until sauce is thick and coated all burgers.
    Serve on buns with sliced spanish onions, mustard relish and tomato slice and pickles.

    This recipe my mom used to make at the Soo Drive In theatre when I was a kid, so it has to be over 55 years old. They also did this same one with left over sliced turkey and minced ground beef. They also sometimes added canned tomatoes, if they needed a larger amount of sauce instead of more water. Adjust the seasonings to your liking if desired by adding hot sauce or peppers if you like it spicey in those days things were never spicey hot.

    Edited to say although I grew up with many Ukranian, Polish, and Italians, ( mom been Italian) I don't know if this is one of their recipes. So my guess is that its a Heinz tomato soup recipe originally or Canadian recipe. I don't know the familys name that owned the Drive In Theatre.

    This is definitely not Eastern European cooking. icon_wink.gif Your best bet is to try and find an older woman from the region(Buffalo, Erie, Pittsburgh, Cleveland) who might remember the recipe. I'll try to remember to ask my friend to ask her mother as she very well may know as she's a Polish immigrant who's lived in the region for well over 50 years. Hopefully she'll remember it though as she's not exactly young anymore.

    Thank you, everyone, for the responses. I will try your recipes, Kittencal, since it sounds similar.

    I apologize for my delay in getting back here. My cat had been sick and died in June and it threw everything off in my life since he was the love of my life icon_sad.gif

    If I find the recipe I'm looking for, I'll let everyone know.

    Thank you,

    I may also be trying to find that same recipe. My mom used to play bingo at a russian orthodox church in Gary, IN when I was little. They served a bbq sandwich which was like a sloppy joe that had a layer of saurkraut with paprika on top served on a bun. Have you had any luck finding what you're looking for?

    I just the post and my ex used to mention it that is Mom made.

    As kitten mentioned, he mentioned using tomato sauce, garlic, worcestershire, onions and put the finished burger in the sauce which simmer for quite a while. I don't have any ingredients other than he knew it had tomato sauce which he remembers his mom adding, the dark sauce as he called it (worcestershire), onions and garlic. He also said a light tang ... member a little red wine vinegar, but don't know.

    He also said sloppy on a bun and sometimes cheese.

    The poster may not be able to open the PDF file. I can but when I tried to copy & paste and print it here, my laptop would not allow me to C&P. Not sure why.....

    Can you print the recipe here for all to see? It would be helpful.
