  • 2 Tbsp. brown mustard
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped

  • 1 lb. chopped onion
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar


Brown ground beef in a large pot and drain the grease. Add all remaining ingredients to beef (in large pot) and stir to combine. Simmer on low for about two hours. Optional: Add more water if the mixture is too thick for your taste. Serve on your choice of bun.
