You lost me at "freeze for up to a month". This odd notion of preparing and then freezing a fresh meal is ridiculous. Why not just eat what you are preparing when it is fresh?

This was delicious! Has quite a kick to it! I loved it! Used brown sugar instead of molasses. So good!

I didn't do this in the slow cooker because when I started making this I didn't realize that it was a slow cooker recipe. So, I browned the onions and ground beef then added all the sauce ingredients and simmered for 20-30 minutes. Served over whole wheat hamburger buns. I cut the recipe in half, so it should have served 4 people, but I felt the serving size was a little small. I have no idea how this whole recipe would ever serve 12 people. The flavor was really great and will probably make again (adjusting the amount of the ingredients though).
