Crock-Pot Sloppy Joes

Crock-Pot Sloppy Joe’s - CrockPotLadiesMy husband asked one day “why don’t we ever have Sloppy Joes for dinner”.  Of course I replied “because you told me you do not like them”.   Well a request was made, and of course I had a recipe for them in the crock-pot.   15 minutes of work at the stove and adding ingredients to the crock-pot and the rest is done while I put my feet up and watch a little television. This recipes makes about 4-6 sandwiches.  Not a whole lot, but it is an easy recipe to double or triple based on your needs.

    Why on earth would you use a crockpot for this? You are browning the meat in a skillet, so why not just cook there? I love to use my crockpot, but I want to use it to save time. This does not save time, it uses more. It does not take long to just continue on the stove. I just don’t get it. But, I appreciate the recipe; I will use it to make my own SJs without processed canned SJ sauce. Thanks.

      Browning in the crock-pot is possible..but takes alot longer. This is one of those recipes that is great to plan for a party or a group. Or when you want to keep it warm but not keep the stove on. You can also cook the hamburger ahead of time, and then use it as a quick freezer meal (package the ingredients and pop in the freezer, bring it out when you do not have alot of time to cook and dump in the crock-pot)

        I made it for a group pool party whereby guests could fix a sandwich when they wanted. Served with pickles, slaw, potato salad, chips, etc. Did cut the sweetness with a tad more mustard. Great recipe! Thanks.

      put the lid on the crock-pot slightly ajar and cook on low a little longer. It will get rid of some of the extra water. You can also use just a little corn starch and mix it in to thicken it.

    I made these tonight…..really, REALLY good. I added a few more ingredients: fresh garlic, parsley, chili powder, and thyme. Because I’m gluten free I put mines on romaine lattice leave with a little cheddar cheese. Amazing results, my husband is pleased. Thank you for the recipe.
