Yet another recipe from Grandma Baumann; homemade sloppy joes!
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tbsp flour
3/4 cup hot water
1 tbsp prepared mustard
3/4 cup chili sauce
1/2 cup cooked celery
Brown ground beef and onion. Drain off the fat. Stir in flour and add hot water. Cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add mustard, chili sauce, and cooked celery. Simmer 15 minutes. Serve on buns.
A fairly simple recipe, when it comes down to it, but absolutely yummy.
I found too, if you don’t cook the celery beforehand, you can easily do it in the microwave. Just put the celery in a microwave safe measuring cup, cover with water, and heat like you would a cup of water to boil. The celery will be cooked through and ready for the pot.
