I think we are all going to bust!! This was great and easy to make. I did not brown the beef in the skillet like you said just lazy I guess. I started my crockpot on high for 1 hour then turned it down to low for 7. We love how thick it came out in the end. I think you could add more hot water if you'd like yours not as thick. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
