Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes

3 lb ground beef or turkey
2 cup onion, chopped (2 large)
4 clove garlic, minced
2 1/2 cup chopped sweet peppers (about 2-3 medium)
2 cup chopped celery
12 oz beer
1 cup ketchup
2 tbsp molasses
2 tbsp yellow mustard
4 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cider vinegar
1 dash hot pepper sauce
12 buns
1 dill pickle slices (optional)
1 slice pickled peppers (optional)


In a large skillet cook ground beef, onions, and garlic over medium heat until may is brown and onion are tender, using a wooden spoon to break up meat as it cooks. Drain off fat. (I have to do this in two steps because I need a larger skillet). In a 3.5 or 4 quart slow cooker combine meat mixture, sweet peppers, celery, beer, ketchup, molasses, yellow mustard, chili powder, vinegar, and a dash of hot pepper sauce. Cover and cook on low-heat seeing for 6 to 8 hours on high-heat setting fire 3 to 4 hours To serve, use a slotted spoon to soon meat mixture onto roll bottoms. If desired, add assorted toppers ( pickles, peppers, extra mustard). Personally I usually eat these open faced because they're pretty sloppy.
