Old Fashioned Sloppy Joes

Servings: 6


  • 2 T cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup celery (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup green pepper (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1 t yellow mustard
  • 2 dashes worcestershire sauce
  • 6 hamburger buns


  • Heat a large pan on low-medium heat. Add cooking oil and then saute celery, pepper, onion and garlic with the salt for 2-3 mins, stirring occasionally. 
  • Increase heat to medium and add ground beef. Cook until beef is no longer pink, breaking up the beef and stirring frequently. Strain the meat (I like the fine mesh strainer that comes with this set) or use a baster to remove excess liquid when done.
  • Add in chili sauce, cheese, mustard and worcestershire sauce. Stir until well blended.
  • Spoon beef mixture onto hamburger buns and serve.
