Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This easy Crock Pot dish is similar to a sloppy joe. Julie's concoction is better than any premade sauce or canned mix, though. It's a little bit sweet with a tang. After browning the meat on the stove, the slow cooker does all the work and the meat cooks down really nice and tender. This would be great to throw together for a crowd for a football game but I would double the recipe. It will disappear quickly!

Note: We gave this a stir about an hour into simmering so the sides wouldn't burn.

Ingredients

2 lb
ground beef
several shakes of Worcestershire (about a 1/4 cup)
1
squirt of yellow mustard (about the size of a half dollar)
1/2 c
ketchup
1/2 c
light brown sugar
1 bottle
chili sauce, 12 oz.
1
splash of white vinegar (about 1 tbsp)
1 Tbsp
minced garlic
