BBQ Beans with Beef

2 tbl water
1 onion, chopped
3/4 lb lean ground beef (can substitute turkey)
1 garlic clove, minced
3/4 c. ketchup
1/3 c. yellow mustard
1/4 c. Splenda brown sugar blend
2 tbl Worcestershire sauce
1 tbl paprika
1 tbl chili powder
1 tsp dried thyme
1 bay leaf
salt & pepper to taste

In a large nonstick skillet, cook the water and onion over medium-high heat, stirring often, until onion begins to soften, about 10 min. Add ground beef and garlic. Cook and stir until meat is browned, 5-7 min. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 min. or until bubbly. Remove bay leaf and serve.
