Forget about those cans of sloppy joe sauce. You don’t need ‘em. These slow cooker sloppy joes are just as easy to make, and they’re tastier and healthier, too.
Just spend five minutes prepping the ingredients, and let your slow cooker take it from there.
Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes Recipe
What You Do:
In a frying pan over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef. Then, drain the fat.
Add the ground beef and all of the other ingredients to your crockpot. Stir well to combine. Cover, and cook on low for four hours, stirring occasionally.
The peppers and onions will release their juices as they cook. If there’s a little more liquid than you’d like at the end of the cooking time, just remove the lid, and cook your sloppy joes a bit longer.Print
