Beef Steamburgers

READY IN: 45mins

This is not a steamed burger but a sloppy joe type of sandwich. I'm sure you could also use ground chicken or pork for this. I'll have to try that myself!!

This is worth 4 stars but to qualify my rating keep in mind the context: sloppy joes! I've made this twice now, both times I used a whole onion instead of a half. The first time I made it, this was the only change I made and it was great. The second time, the mixture tasted a little bit on the bitter side so I added a few tablespoons of soft dark brown sugar and that solved it. The 1/2 t cayenne might be too much, so start with half that and then add more as you taste it if you are going to be feeding kids. Thanks, marypage -- I wish I knew why they were called "steam burgers"... any idea?
