Pizza Joes, Sloppy Jose's, and Marci Jone's Famous Sloppy Joes.  All three are tried and true, and easy and economical to make.  Serve with homemade fries, or chips and some coleslaw, and you really have something. You and you're family are sure to enjoy them.

Marci Jones' Famous Sloppy Joes
I received this recipe from Marci over 25 years ago.  I had to promise not to share the recipe with anyone until after she had passed away.  She has been gone many years now and the only other place her recipe appears is in the "Taste of Sturgis" Cookbook.

3 medium onions, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3 pounds ground beef
1/4 cup butter
2 cups finely chopped celery
1 finely chopped green pepper
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 (12 ounce bottle) Chili sauce
2 tablespoon white vinegar

Saute onions in 2 tablespoons butter for 5 minutes over medium heat.  Remove fro pan.  Brown ground beef in 1/4 cup butter until lightly browned, stirring often.  Drain.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.  Spoon onto toasted buns.
