Recipe

It’s funny how some things that you absolutely refuse to eat as a child brussel sprouts, asparagus, meatloaf, and sloppy joes become things that you enjoy, or even love, as an adult. As a kid I hated sloppy joes. Perhaps due to the Adam Sandler Lunch Lady song, anyone remember, Sloppy joe, slop, sloppy, joe or perhaps just because I thought it was weird to eat a sandwich for dinner. Either way, I am happy my taste buds have changed and am in love with this slow cooker sloppy joe recipe. I prefer mine with ground beef but ground chicken or turkey would work as well. Makes a quick and delicious meal that will last all week.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, brown the beef until it is no longer pink. Drain off any excess fat and transfer to the slow cooker.
  2. Meanwhile in a large mixing bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients to create your sloppy joe sauce.
  3. Pour the sloppy joe sauce over the browned beef and stir together. Cook on low for 6-8 hours to get all the flavors to combine. Let settle for five minutes before serving. Consider serving on browned rolls, over pasta, or over a lower carb option like cauliflower rice or spaghetti squash.
