Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes

 We had these last night and they were really good. I think what really made them was the toasting of the hamburger buns, it made them so warm and yummy.

2 pounds ground beef, I did 1 beef 1 ground turkey
1 onion diced
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup flour
1Tbsp chili powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
American cheese slices

In a large pan, brown ground beef with chopped onion. Crumble and cook until no longer pink. Drain grease.

Put the rest of the ingredients into your slow cooker and mix thoroughly. Add ground beef mixture into your slow cooker, stir all together

Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours. ( mine was starting to stick at about 3 so i just turned it to keep warm)

This is the most important step. When ready to serve toast hamburger buns. Put butter on the buns then toast them in a skillet until golden brown-not burnt :)
Place filling on warm buns and top with cheese. Enjoy
