- 1/4 cup Vinegar (white)
- 1/4 cup Prepared Yellow Mustard
- 1/2 tsp Celery Seed
- 3/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
- 3/4 tsp Salt
Place the ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook, stirring to crumble, until beef is browned then drain.
Transfer the beef and onion to a slow cooker and stir in the ketchup, sugar, vinegar and mustard.
Season with celery seed, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and salt.
