I’ll Never Say Another Bad Thing About Sloppy Joes As Long As I Live!

Thankfully I was smart enough to whip up several other side dishes to go along with these, because they were gone in no time. I even bought smaller buns thinking that people would fill up on the bread, but it wasn’t so much the case. I even saw a few guys dumping the sloppy joe mix on their plates plain and eating it that way. It’s a good thing that I took out a couple scoops for me and my husband or we would have had to eaten something else that night. We both really enjoyed these and I’ll be making them again and again!

Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at NeighborFood:

“Made these for my meat eating husband and son and they liked them very well.”

I don’t think I’ve ever had anyone tell me that they didn’t enjoy these sloppies!



2 lbs. ground beef

1 green pepper, diced

1 small yellow onion, diced

4 Tablespoons Domino brown sugar

4 Tablespoons Gold Medal flour

1 Tablespoon mustard

1 1/2 cups Heinz ketchup

2 Tablespoons Worcestershire

2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 Tablespoons water

8 buns or rolls

8 slices American cheese

Bread and butter pickles

French fried onions




In a skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef, onions, and green pepper until no pink remains. Drain all but 1-2 Tablespoons of the fat from the pan.

In a slow cooker, combine the cooked beef and veggies and all the remaining ingredients, up to the rolls. Stir to combine. Set the crock pot to low and cook for 4-6 hours. It helps if you can give these a stir every hour or so to keep it from sticking, but it’s not totally necessary.

To serve, pile the sloppy joe mixture onto the buns. Top with the cheese, pickles, and onions.






Quick Tip: You can make these into sliders too if you want!
