Catherine's Crock Pot Sloppy Joes

Our cute friends Brian and Catherine invited us over to their beautiful home for dinner last weekend. A few minutes into the meal my sweet 8 year old came over and whispered in my ear "Mom, I like Catherine's sloppy joes better than yours." You've gotta love brutal honesty! I knew right then that I had to have the recipe, and Catherine was sweet enough to share it with me. They are quite divine and obviously kid friendly. Hope you enjoy!

1 1/2 pounds extra lean ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
3/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/2 cup diced celery
1 Tbs. brown sugar
2 Tbs. mustard
2 Tbs. vinegar
2 Tbs. worcestershire
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
6-8 hamburger buns

Combine all ingredients (except the buns, obviously!) in the crock pot and cook on high for 3-4 hours or on low for 6-8 hours. Serve on warm buns.

LOVE that brutal honesty, don't we? These sound yummy, Lisa, and your picture is beautiful. We'll be trying these soon:)

Thanks Alli. These were part of our St. Patrick's day dinner (hence all the green!). We had sloppy joes, asparagus, cucumbers, lime jello with pears, chips and guacamole, and green tinted key lime pie for desert. It was really fun and my kids thought it was fabulous!
