Remember these? This is a yummy retro sloppy joe recipe that is pure comfort food and no-fail. It tastes even better the second day as leftovers, and freezes well too. This recipe received a 5-star rating on Recipezaar from 433 readers and was submitted by "Hey Jude". It is flavorful, tasty, tangy and sweet. Denny loved it!

1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
2-3 stalks celery, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 T firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp dry mustard
Salt and pepper
1 T worcestershire sauce
1 T vinegar

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef, celery and onions. Drain off the fat and excess fluid. Stir in remaining ingredients; simmer uncovered, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook until it's the consistency you like. Serve on toasted hamburger buns. This goes great with sweet potato fries.
