Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes

Slow cooker sloppy joes is the perfect dish when you’re running low on money and want something super easy to cook up.

This dish cooks out to be quite rich and packed full of flavour. The combination of the ketchup, Worcestershire, Dijon and brown sugar leaves you with a deliciously rich sauce. If you love tons of sauce then I highly recommend doubling all the sauce ingredients.

Whilst you can eat this just on its own I highly recommend having it in a freshly baked bread roll. If you’re feeling really hungry than some chips just really tops this dish off. You can include these in the roll with the sloppy joe mix or on the side.

You can easily bulk this recipe out if you need to feed more people. You should find this base recipe will feed quite a few people, especially if you’re having it with bread rolls and crispy chips.

This is just yet another great ground beef dish you can cook up in a slow cooker. Perfect if you’re looking for a dish that is friendly on your budget but still incredibly delicious.

Leftovers of this dish are great for use in a sandwich the next day. You can reheat the leftovers but they’re actually surprisingly good cold too. Just make sure you store it in the fridge or freezer until you need it. It should last for roughly 3 days in the fridge.

Cooking Tips:

Browning the beef isn’t important but if you do want less liquid at the end of cooking then I highly recommend doing it. Also by browning the meat and draining the excess fluid you will have less fat in the final dish.
Adding a 400g (14 oz.) can of crushed tomatoes will add a lot more fluid to this dish. Perfect if you prefer your sloppy joes a bit more wet then what this recipe produces.
If you prefer your food to be less on the sweet side then simply leave the sugar out.
You can change the slow cooking time for this dish to something a lot shorter. Even when set on low this dish will be fine cooking for as short as 2 hours, however the flavor might not have fully developed in such a short time. Personally, I would avoid setting the slow cooker to the high temperature.

I use a 5.5L/6 Quart slow cooker for all the recipes that I have on this website unless specified. If you have a smaller or larger slow cooker then you might need to adjust the ingredients.
