Very Sloppy Joels by Kate Gosselin for #WeekdaySupper

Recipe: Very Sloppy Joels

Summary: Kate Gosselin says, “This recipe is a great way to hide veggies, and the kids can’t get enough of it. I serve the leftovers (if there are any!) with tortilla chips the next day for lunch. It’s always a hit.”


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1½ cups ketchup
  • 6 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3½ tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 3 teaspoons celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a large saucepan, brown the beef. Add the onion, green pepper, and celery and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Mix in all of the remaining ingredients and cover; simmer on low for 30 minutes. Serve on buns.
