Homemade Sloppy Joe

Sloppy Joe's

16 ounces ground beef
2-3 stalks celery, chopped (I usually leave this out-can't stand cooked celery!)
1 small onion, chopped
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup BBQ sauce (use your favorite)
1 tblsp. firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard (I never seem to have this so I just squirt in some yellow mustard)
salt and pepper
1 tblsp. Worcestershire suace
1 tblsp. vinegar

1.  In a large skillet, brown beef, celery and onion and drain fat.
2.  Stir in remaining ingredients, simmer covered for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3.  If looks too "loose", leave the cover off and let moisture evaporate.
4.  Cook until it's the consistency you like for serving on buns.

This is super easy - I usually double and put some in the freezer.  It is great with some french fries and with cole slaw (put it on the bun with the Joe).  Yum!
