Crockpot Sloppy Joes

These are so easy to make!  You can put the ground beef in the crockpot frozen or not.  
I found the original recipe from The Stay-at-Home Chef... I looked for the recipe on the site was not able to find it!

Note:  You could use a low fat content if you are worried about the extra grease since its tough to drain off the grease from the cooked sloppy joes.  I used an 85%/15% blend and it wasn't overly greasy.

I think I'll be making these for supper tonight!  Serve them on some fresh buns with pickles or any other toppings you like on your sloppy joes!  Enjoy!

-1 1/2 lb. ground beef {or other ground meat, no need to thaw if frozen}
-1 cup tomato sauce
-1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
-1 tbsp molasses
-1 tsp worchestershire sauce
-1 tsp onion powder
-1/2 tsp garlic powder
-salt and pepper to taste {about 1 or 2 tsp each}
-1/2 to 3/4 cup brown sugar
-dash cayenne pepper
-2 tbsp prepared yellow mustard
-2 oz. applesauce, grape jelly or apple butter

1. Place all ingredients in crockpot.  Turn on low and stir occasionally, to blend everything and break up the meat as it cooks.
2. Allow to cook for 6-8 hours, the mixture should thicken up.
3. Enjoy with your favorite sloppy joe toppings!
