2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
2 celery ribs, finely chopped
1/4 cup red bell pepper, finely chopped
1-2/3 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. Heinz '57 Steak Sauce
1 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. ground mustard
1/4 tsp. paprika
In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook beef, onion, celery and red pepper until the meat is no longer pink and the vegetables are tender. Drain.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Spoon 1/2 cup meat mixture onto each bun.
NOTE: I butter the buns and lightly brown them under the broiler before spooning mixture on them.
