    Yes, you brown the ground beef in a skillet with the bell pepper, onion, and garlic before placing everything into the slowcooker. Enjoy!

  2. Planning to try this tomorrow. If you make it in a slow cooker, do you have to brown the ground beef first or can you just throw everything into the slow cooker and let it cook?
