The original recipe was part of a scout troop International food project for one of the badges they were working on and submitted by one of the girls in our troop. However it has been modified for the crock pot, plus the stewing beef was replaced with ground beef.

This was a nice comfort food meal. My husband really liked it, I thought it was a little too sweet. Next time I will leave out or cut back on the brown sugar. Made as directed, but used ground turkey as I don't eat beef.

This was really good. My family liked it and they don't care for casserole-type dishes. It's a bit bland, but not in a bad way. Used only one onion, but still was good. Nice sweet flavor along with the beef (I used ground sirloin). Inexpensive way to feed a crowd.
I will be making this again.

I made this recipe on 10/25/09 for the " Think Pink 2009 " Breast Cancer Awareness event, and as part of mine and SO's dinner.Since there was just the two of us, everything but the ground beef was cut in half. Since no egg noodles were on hand, I used spaghetti noodles and they worked just fine. The taste wasn't as spicy as we liked, but it was a nice change of pace from what we are used to.
