Saute onion,garlic and celery in olive oil for five minutes or until soft and translucent.In a large pot brown ground beef until no longer pink.Drain and rinse excess fat off.Transfer to a large crock pot.Add onion mixture to the crock pot along with the rest of the ingredients except for the baking soda and mushrooms.Baking soda is to be added only if you are cooking the fast way (1 hour on high)The baking soda will neutralize the acid in the tomato sauce.At this point you need to cook on low for four hours if you are cooking the slow way.The last fifteen minutes add the canned mushrooms.You will not be disappointing in the flavor!!!!!
