1/2 teaspoon paprika
3 tablespoon vinegar
3 Tablespoon brown sugar

1. In a LARGE skillet brown ground beef. Breaking it  up into small pieces.

2. Drain beef and place in slow cooker.

3. Dump all the remaining ingredients in and give it a good stir!

4. Turn slow cooker on low and cook for 6-8 hours.  Serve on Hamburger buns.
