  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 6 hamburger rolls


  • Fry hamburger and onion together until browned; drain if needed.
  • Add remaining ingredients (excluding hamburger rolls of course!) and stir until combined.
  • Cover and simmer about 20 minutes.
  • Serve on hamburger rolls. (We love spreading some mayonnaise on the rolls too for extra deliciousness.)


The meat on each sandwich can be topped with pickles or cheese if desired.
