I've tried many recipes; this is the best. You can 'dec-tuple' (10x) this recipe for big events, large parties, etc.. Freezes well, goes up to the lake or camping well and is a hit on Halloween...it's no-fail. Easy to double, triple, etc.
In a large skillet, brown ground beef, celery and onion.
Drain the fat, who needs it?
Stir in remaining ingredients, simmer covered, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
If Joes appear too 'loose', leave cover off and let moisture evaporate.
Cook until it's the consistency you like for serving on toasted buns, with french fries and cole slaw.
"Pizza Joes" variation:
Once I didn't have tomato sauce, so subbed an 8-oz. can of pizza sauce and served them up with shredded mozzarella cheese on the toasted buns, top and bottom. I also left out the BBQ sauce in this preparation and just used a 1/2 cup ketchup. Pizza Joes are good to go!
