Sloppy Joes ~My Mom's Recipe

Sloppy Joes
1/2 cup onion, minced
1/4 cup green or red pepper, diced
1/2 cup celery, chopped
1 lb. ground beef, browned
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/4 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup catsup
1 tbsp. vinegar
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

I use half turkey and half beef...
it is your preference.

Brown the ground meat together in your skillet, 
breaking it into bite size pieces.  
Cook until no pink remains.

While the meat is cooking, chop your vegetables.

Drain the browned meat in a colander.

Saute the onions, peppers and celery in the same pan.

To the meat and vegetables, add the rest of the ingredients.

Simmer approximately 1 hour...

or until the desired consistency.

Serve on a bun with your favorite sides.
