Make Your Own...Sloppy Joe's!

I tried a new recipe for sloppy joe's last week, it was SO good! Much better than the canned version. If sloppy joe's are on your upcoming menu you must try this recipe.

Sloppy Joe's                 Serves 8
2lbs lean ground beef (or turkey, chicken, pork, whatever you prefer)
1/2 cup chopped onion*
1 cup chopped celery
1 (10.75oz) can condensed tomato soup
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
8 hamburger buns

1. Place ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring to crumble. Add onion and celery, cover the pan and cook until tender and transparent, about 5 minutes. (I didn't cover my pan and it was fine.) Drain off any grease.
2. Stir the "sauce" ingredients together. Heat to simmer over low heat, and cook until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently to prevent it from burning on the bottom.
3. Spoon onto buns and Enjoy!!!

*I have some major issues with cutting onions so I used dehydrated minced onion and it was fine.

The celery really added a nice flavor to it and cooked in really well. I'm sure this would freeze well, with or without the meat added. DELICIOUS!
