Step one: Start by preheating your oven and prepare a casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
Step two: Cook and crumble ground beef with diced onion in a large skillet.
Step three: To your beef add seasoning salt, tomato sauce, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Next, add this to the bottom of your casserole dish.
