Cambridge Cheerleaders Barbecue

Comment on this recipe

I made many a batch of this recipe as a fund-raiser for our cheerleaders. It always is a popular sandwich with everyone. It also can be frozen and is nice to have on hand for a quick pick-up meal on busy days.

Ingredients

3 pounds hamburger
1-1/2 cups finely chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped celery
1 can (12 or 15 ounce) tomato sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

Brown hamburger until no pink remains. Drain off all grease. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring often. If mixture seems a little dry, a little water can be added. This can also be made in a crock pot.
