Dana's notes for this recipe:
This is not just another sloppy joe recipe. It is really yummy and my husband thinks they are the best ever. The side dish is Jane's Creamy Ranch Potatoes which are so super!

In a Dutch oven over medium heat brown your ground beef, onion, celery and green pepper until the meat is no longer pink and the veggies are tender; drain.
Add the next 9 ingredients; mix well. Simmer uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes stirring occasionally. Spoon 1/2 cup of the meat mixture into each bun. Enjoy.

Thanks Donna. Hope you try them. Also forgot to mention that I mix this all up the day before and put it in the crock pot on low so it is ready later when I get home from work the next day.

Oh, a great idea. That would be a great one for Sunday a.m. and it will be ready by the time you get home from church.

Yep! Have a Sunday Dinner crock pot meal that is made with chicken which my son and husband just love!
