Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes {Recipe}

Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes | MomOnTimeout.com

I love slow cooker recipes.  I mean how great is it to start a recipe when you’re not busy and be able to waltz on into the kitchen at dinner time and serve up a hot, home-cooked meal?  Works for me!  Here is my Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes recipe…  Easy peasy people!

Ingredients:
1 lb lean ground beef (the leaner the better)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tsp mustard
3/4 c ketchup
1/4 c bbq sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbls cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
hamburger buns

Directions:
Yup, you guessed it – throw everything into your slow cooker!

Let your slow cooker work it’s magic for 3-4 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low, stirring occasionally, and voila!

If your mixture starts looking dried out at any time, just add in 1-2 Tbls water to make it juicier.  If it is too juicy, leave the lid off of your slow cooker for the last half hour and let some of the liquids evaporate to thicken it up.  Serve up a healthy portion on a toasted hamburger bun and dinner is served my friends!

  4. Those look really good, I have been on the hunt for a new sloppy joe recipe. I used to use campbell’s chicken gumbo, but they changed to a light version that doesn’t work at all for sloppy joes.

    Love that you don’t have to cook beef first as slow cooker does it for you. This is a keeper.

  26. We love sloppy joes…this recipe makes me hungry. I like all of the ingredients you have used…I need to spice up our sloppy joes and this may be the trick.

  27. I just finished putting this in the crockpot! Looking forward to coming home to it after swimming lessons tonight! I will let you know how everyone like it! I doubled it for leftovers…counting on it being a hit1 :)

  28. These sloppy joes look fantastic – I can’t wait to try them! I found you and your recipe at Gooseberry Patch’s Recipe Round-Up. Thanks for sharing.

  29. Is there a printable version?

  30. Lindsey says:

    Have you every tried doubling or tripling this recipe? I just wondered how much longer it might take.

  31. Will continue on for search of perfect recipe. This was too sweet and included too many processed ingredients for my taste

  32. Hey over here in the UK we just call that mince beef and onion gravy.. you should try it… fry your mince and onion until mince is sealed.. the add 1 pint of water, salt pepper, and bring to a simmer. add 2 oxo cubes. diced carrots and peas. cook through. add some more water depending on how you like your gravy..i use flour and water to thicken my gravy just the way i like it.. and some poured of a mountain of creamed potatoes.. yum yum.. a great family feeder..

  33. I’m pretty sure the “sweetness” would depend on what brand and flavor of BBQ sauce you use. Just saying. It’s not the recipe’s fault.

    Also I doubt that I would use the cider vinegar because that adds a “sweet” flavor (to me) as well.
    The great thing about this recipe is that you can tweak it to your taste.
    Thanks for sharing! Will try soon!

  34. So you DONT cook the meat first?!
