Slow Cooking Thursday - Sloppy Joes for a Crowd

Got plans for a get together and need something easy and quick to make? How about Sloppy Joes in the Crock pot?

Slow-Cooked Sloppy Joes
3 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1(12-oz.) bottle chili sauce
1(6-oz.) can tomato paste
2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
21 sandwich buns, split
Yield: 21 sandwiches
In large skillet, brown ground hamburger beef, onions, celery and bell pepper until beef is thoroughly cooked. Drain.
Place ground beef mixture in 3 1/2-to 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in all remaining ingredients except buns.
Cover; cook on low setting 3 to 5 hours, stirring occasionally. Serve on toasted buns

Crock pot/Slow cooking is a life saver for me when work and home schedules are busy. Have a favorite slow cooker recipe? Add it to your blog and link back to Diary of a SAHM
