Sloppy Joes

1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 large can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
dash Tabasco sauce, cayenne pepper, or Frank's Red Hot
10 to 12 hamburger buns, split and toasted

In a large skillet, cook ground beef, onion, and celery until meat is browned and onion is tender. Drain off excess fat.

Stir in tomato sauce, seasoned salt, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, pepper, and Tabasco sauce.

Simmer, uncovered, until mixture reduces to desired consistency, about 25 to 35 minutes. Spoon about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of ground beef mixture into each bun.

I serve with cheddar cheese and slices of tomato on top.

Makes about 10 to 12 sandwiches.
