This is the recipe an old local family-owned restaurant in my childhood hometown used for their coney sauce. When I visited a couple of years ago, the restuarant had closed. I was saddened to see it go. I am in my 60s and remember hearing the story of how I grabbed my mother's vanilla coke when I was a baby and dumped it in her lap at said restaurant.

hamburger meat (desired amount)
lots of finely chopped celery and onion
Brown the above together and add several dashes of soy sauce, 2 pinches of sugar, and 1 can of tomato soup, undiluted.

Simmer mixture for at least 30 minutes Stir often to keep from burning. This mixture freezes well.
