Not So Sloppy Joes

Keep this old stand-by in your freezer for quick meals.

2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 10 3/4 oz can condensed tomato soup
1/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbsp white vinegar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
8 whole grain hamburger buns

1. Place ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring to crumble. Add the onion, celery, and bell pepper. Cover the pan, and cook until the vegetables are tender and transparent, about 5 minutes. Drain off any grease.
2. Stir the tomato soup, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce into the beef mixture. Season with salt and garlic powder. Heat to a simmer over low heat, and cook until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently to prevent it from burning on the bottom.
3. Spoon the hot beef mixture onto buns, which may be toasted first, and serve.

Servings: 8
