It took a long time for me to come up with this recipe. It tastes just like the ones they made in school. Onions and green peppers, and lots of other ingredients that make this burger so special. After having this, you will never have sloppy joe from the can again, and the ingredients are things you probably have in your kitchen most of the time!!

    In crock pot, add uncooked ground beef and cook on med heat until almost browned (still has pink here and there.)
