Jan Domshy tells us via the Internet that, like so many of us, she counts on ground beef in the freezer for quick, hearty skillet suppers like these saucy sandwiches. "I had to make up a quick batch when I had to feed a bunch of hungry guys pronto after we poured concrete!" she says. "It is ready really fast." She improvises, too, adding canned beans or chili sauce from the pantry to accommodate a crowd.
