In that same skillet add the 2 tablespoons of butter and melt over medium high heat and add the onions and saute until transparent, about 3 minutes.
Stir in all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 to 7 minutes. Watch for bubbling and splattering tomato sauce!

Butter the inside of the buns and toast them on a griddle pan.
Spoon the meat mixture on to the prepared buns and enjoy.
