Super Sloppy Joes

The picture above is not what my sloppy joes look like, but until I take a picture of mine, this will have to do...mine are served open faced with beans mixed in and cheese melted on top!

2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 celery ribs with leaves, chopped
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 and 2/3 cups canned crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup ketchup
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp steak sauce
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp paprika
4-5 hamburger buns, split
(optional: 1 can of pinto or small red beans, drained)
grated cheddar cheese

In a Dutch oven over medium heat, cook beef, onion, celery and green pepper until the meat is no longer pink and the vegetables are tender; drain. Add the next nine ingredients--if adding beans do so now; mix well. Simmer, uncovered , for 35-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. If adding beans do so now. Spoon 1/2 cup meat mixture onto each bun, sprinkle with grated cheese and heat under broiler until melted.
