Very good! I browned the ground beef with the onions and celery, reduced the water to 1/2 cup and threw it all in the crockpot. I will definitely be making this again!

These are AWESOME! Threw it all in the crockpot after the beef was browned. Reduced the water to 1/2 c- Cooked for 1 hr on high then reduced to low. The house sure smelled great when DH walked in :) I will make this recipe again!! Thank You!

This was very good. I did add a pinch of crushed red pepper, and a dash of hot sauce for some heat. I also seasoned the meat with garlic powder and italian seasoning. I like my sloppy joes a bit less runny, so I would probably add another 1/2 - 1 pound of meat. I like that it comes together so quickly, if needed. I combined all the wet ingredients and seasonings, brought it to a boil, and began reducing while I browned the meat. It turned out great...thanks for sharing! ;-)
