Leftover Lion House Sloppy Joe Buns and Recipe

We had some leftover rolls that start to get hard in a day or two if not eaten, usually there all gone by the next day. But today my sons wanted sloppy joes, so I steamed the buns over the pan while fixing the sloppy joes and they were perfectly soft again.
These rolls are great to use as buns for all types of dishes, we've had tuna salad, chicken salad, spam, ham and cheese, just to name a few so don't discard them just because they have gone a little stale.

Recipe for sloppy joes:

2 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 chopped onions
2 ½ pounds ground beef
2 Tbs. tomato paste
2/3 c. of your favorite BBQ sauce
½ c. ketchup
¼ c. Worcestershire sauce
¼ c. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, stirring, until they start to turn translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the beef and cook, stirring and breaking up the meat, until it is finely crumbled, the liquid boils off and the meat begins to brown, about 10 minutes. Drain the grease off the meat and onions. Stir in the tomato paste, and keep stirring until the meat is coated. Add the BBQ sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, soy sauce, and pepper, and bring to a boil. Cook until the sauce is slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.
Cut your rolls in half and spoon sloppy joe mixture on.  Enjoy!
