BEEF AND CABBAGE JOES
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion, 1 medium
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
2 cups shredded cabbage
1/3 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup catsup
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
8 hamburger buns, split and toasted
Cook and stir the meat, onion and celery in a large skillet until the meat is brown. Drain off the excess fat.
Stir in the cabbage, green pepper, catsup, water, salt, and mustard and heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat and cover. Simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 25 minutes.
Spoon the mixture onto the bottom halves of the buns and top with the remaining halves.
For Sloppy Joes, omit the cabbage and salt.
