|Prep Time:||35 minutes|
|Ready in:||45 minutes|
|Yield:||8 servings, generous 1/2 cup filling each|
|Ease of Prep:||Easy|
|12 ounces 90%-lean ground beef|
|1 large onion , finely diced|
|2 cups finely chopped cremini mushrooms (about 4 ounces)|
|5 plum tomatoes , diced|
|2 tablespoons all-purpose flour|
|1/2 cup water|
|1/4 cup cider vinegar|
|1/4 cup chili sauce , such as Heinz|
|1/4 cup ketchup|
|8 whole-wheat hamburger buns , toasted if desired|
- Crumble beef into a large nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat until it starts to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add onion and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until the vegetables are soft and the moisture has evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes.
- Add tomatoes and flour; stir to combine. Stir in water, vinegar, chili sauce and ketchup and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened and the onion is very tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm on buns.
The filling will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month.
