Wonderful! I browned the beef and celery and onion and then thew everything together in the crockpot and cooked on low for 5 hours! Brought this to work for our "picnic in the parking lot" yesterday. Our regular guests (truck drivers) raved about it! I gave out the recipe to 5 people! This is the best version of this popular "potluck" recipe I've ever tasted! Keep posting Inez!

THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE 5 STARS!!! Outstanding! I made this for a church dinner, the pot was cleaned up in no time. I used the deep cast iron fryer, it made it easier to go from stove top to oven, then kept the meal hot longer at the dinner. The only thing I changes was I didn't have bacon. It has already been requested for the next get together. lol. Thanks!

This is my go-to recipe for potlucks. It is quite forgiving and I often use less hamburger and more beans. I also make it and let it warm and simmer in the crockpot. It has great flavor and is satisfying and flavorful.
