Mom's Sloppy Joes

I made these sloppy joes recently, and they really hit the spot! The seasonings seemed to be just right. Of course, use a good bun and sliced fresh tomato, and your sloppy joe will taste much better.

2 pounds ground beef
3 tablespoons butter
2 large onions, sliced
1 can tomato soup
3/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup water
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Grated Parmesan cheese

Saute the onion and brown the meat in butter. Combine remaining ingredients. Stir into meat. Blend well. Simmer slowly at low heat (about 2 hours) until thick; stir occasionally. Allow to stand overnight to season. Heat and serve on buns. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
