Sloppy Joes

Trouble LOVES sloppy joes! I guess I do too. What I don't like is the instant stuff in the can. Yuck! So instead of using that yuck stuff, I make my own. It's easy and I usually have all of the ingredients.
What you need:
  • 1 pound ground beef, cooked and drained of grease
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard (I use Dijon)
  • ¼ teaspoon liquid smoke
  • sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 6 buns
What you do:
Saute ground beef with onion, celery and garlic, until onion is soft. (5-8 minutes)

Stir in ketchup, salsa, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mustard and liquid smoke.

Bring mixture to a simmer and cook at low heat for 25 minutes.

Serve on toasted buns topped with cheese.

Confession: Whenever I say sloppy joe, in my head I'm singing the Chris Farley/Adam Sandler 'Lunch Lady Land' song. Enjoy the Sloppy Joe, Sloppy, Sloppy Joe!
