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.

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.
