Slow Cooker Directions:

Brown meat with onion, and bell pepper on the stove in a large skillet. Drain grease if necessary. Place meat in slow cooker and stir in ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire, brown sugar, garlic powder, and water. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours.

Notes:

  • Sometimes I’ll prep this dinner in the afternoon, put it in a smaller casserole size slow cooker and it’ll be ready to go by dinner time. This is especially helpful if you attend sports after school and want to come home to a warm ready to serve meal.
  • This is one of those recipes that’s easy to adjust to your family’s taste and also can be made by experimenting with BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, ect. After awhile you don’t even have to measure.
  • Need to feed a crowd on a budget? Easily double or triple this recipe and place in slow cooker to keep warm for sandwiches! Sloppy Joes make yummy football watching food!

    You cab also cook up a pound of ground beef and half a jar or so of yummy pasta sauce (one with veggies and lots of flavor). Super easy and great as sloppy joes, with rice, or pasta.

    I use similar recipe but I lay layer of bread slices (I use French or Italian) on oven safe dish, put meat all over it and put under the broiler for few minutes, LOVE IT 🙂 I also make it with diced chicken.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum! My family would love that too. 😀

    About once a month or so I cook up about 10 pound of ground beef or turkey and then run it through a food processor for easy crumbling, then freeze them in equal amounts. Easy to throw in a skillet for tacos, sloppy joes, hamburger gravy, spaghetti sauce, or chili. Totally is worth the effort in the long run when you need a quick meal!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ya that’s a great tip! Thanks LeAnne 😀

      • rob

        Yes I do this too!!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I just saw this yesterday! So funny!

    I always double it and throw in a couple of handfuls of matchstick carrots. Sneak those veggies in. Plus, it give it a slight crunch and a touch of sweetness.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh great idea!
