  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 13 cup celery, chopped
  • 13 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 13 cup catsup (I add more, about double it)
  • 14 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 18 teaspoon red pepper sauce (or to liking, I add alot more)
  • 6 hamburger buns, split and toasted (but I like to use hot dog buns, holds filling in better)


  1. Cook and stir ground beef and onion in a 10 inch skillet until beef is brown; drain.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients except buns. Cover and cook over low heat just until vegetables are tender. 10-15 minutes.
  3. Fill buns with beef mixture.
