"I'm just beginning to cook so my recipes are pretty quick and simple. This recipe is a really simple, quick, and tasty 'Sloppy Joe.' This is what we are having tonight before we go to the football game. You can also let this simmer in a slow cooker after browning the ground beef if you prefer."
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped celery
7 ounces ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/8 teaspoon lemon juice
8 white or wheat hamburger buns
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble ground beef into skillet; add onion and celery. Cook and stir beef mixture until beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes.
Stir ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard, and lemon juice through the beef mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook mixture at a simmer until mixture is hot and sauce has thickened, about 20 minutes.
