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!
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
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!

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

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