Super Sloppy Joes

I'm not gonna lie.  It is just difficult to duplicate that "manwich-like"flavor.  That being said, after a couple failed attempts, I have found a
"homemade" Sloppy Joe recipe I like.  They really are SUPER. :)

Lyd's Tip:  This may sound funny, but we just had these tonight, and I made a big batch, and had just enough left over to make Shepherds Pie.  I spread it on the bottom of an tin casserole dish, added 2 cans of drained green beans, used our "Sunday mashed potatoes," and topped it with grated cheese.  How easy was that?  Another meal out of the way.  I put foil over the top and froze it.  All this assembly took me about 2 minutes and no extra cooking.  LOVE IT! :)

Super Sloppy Joes (Taste of Home)
2 pounds ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 celery ribs with leaves, chopped
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1-2/3 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon steak sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon paprika
8 to 10 hamburger buns, split

In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook the beef, onion, celery and green pepper until meat is no longer pink and the vegetables are tender; drain.

Stir in the next nine ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Spoon 1/2 cup meat mixture onto each bun. Yield: 8-10 servings.
