1 garlic cloves, minced
1 green bell pepper, seeded & chopped, optional
2 cans (8-oz each) tomato sauce
1 tomato sauce can of water
2 pkgs sloppy joe seasoning mix

Brown ground beef in a large skillet; pour into a colander drain, rinse, and drain again.
Place the drained beef in a crockpot or slow cooker and add the remaining ingredients; stir together well.
Place lid on cooker and cook for 8 to 10 hours on low or 5 hours on high.
If you have too much liquid (you shouldn't have if you drained beef well), remove lid and cook on high the last 30 minutes.
