Janet Boehm


1 tablespoon canola oil
2 pounds ground sirloin
cup chopped green bell pepper
cup chopped celery
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 cup tomato sauce
cup lemon-lime soda
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
8 hamburger buns

Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high. Add the beef, and cook, stirring to crumble, until browned, about 8 minutes. Stir in the bell pepper, celery, onion, and garlic; cook; stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 6 minutes. Drain well.

Transfer the beef mixture to a 5-quart slow cooker. Stir in the tomato sauce, soda, ketchup, mustard, cumin, Worcestershire sauce, salt, oregano, black pepper and 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Cover and cook on HIGH until slightly thickened, about 4 hours, or on LOW about 8 hours. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar. Serve the beef mixture on the hamburger buns.
