This recipe, for BARBEQUE, shared by a friend, over 30 years ago, has been my very favorite Sloppy Joe, or Barbeque recipe over the years.  Since I love the healthy, great taste that vegetables add to recipes, the chopped vegetables in this, along with it's subtle, sweet, tomato sauce base, is absolutely wonderful!  I  like to serve it on buns, open-faced or closed.  (Homemade buns make this hearty barbeque unbeatable!)  This is one recipe you'll want to try! 

1 lb. ground beef (I use 93-7%)
1 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2-3 ribs celery, chopped
1 8-oz. tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketsup
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Brown ground beef.  Cut up vegetables and saute with the browned beef.  Add liquids and the sugar.  Simmer for 20 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.    Serve by spooning barbeque on homemade seeded hamburger buns, or it is very good served open-faced.  YUMMY!
