Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 3 hours
I’ve made this recipe multiple times per my husband and my (almost grown) son’s request (and his friends). I love that I can pop it into the slow cooker and forget about it and know that dinner is done. It gets better as the flavors mesh. Personally I think that the chili sauce makes the recipe awesome. I agree with TheDix that the variations are endless. I always add whatever veggies I have in the fridge to the ground beef to brown. Today it was 5 Roma tomato’s, 1/2 of a green pepper, 1/2 an onion, and baby carrots all chopped very fine. The family loves it and doesn’t realize they are getting some extra veggies too!
Good and easy. I had no chile sauce, so used a can of tomato sauce to go with 1 pound of ground beef. I added some chili powder for flavor's sake. I love simple recipes like this one that lend themselves to lots of variations. The possibilities are endless!
Fantastic! Easy! Delicious! I will make these again.
very good I add red pepper
Great recipe and its wonderful to make it in a slow cooker for hot Summer months or anytime of the year for that matter. Cut the sugar down for health reasons, however, followed the recipe exactly & was still yummy. For the reviewers who mentioned their husbands didn't like this recipe, it doesn't mean that the recipe is not good & its merely an opinion.Carol, THANK YOU SO MUCH for taking the time to share your recipe with us.
Not really sure why anyone would want to dirty up a slow cooker when there's a perfectly good skillet there already in use, but great recipe! Especially with less sugar and more heat. :)
As always, tried the recipe as directed. Was good, but found it a bit too sweet with all the chili sauce. I added some hot peppers, a bit of hot sauce, and used 1/2 the chili sauce, and added about a cup of salsa to it. Also added a bunch of cilantro near the end to add to the flavor. Was much better, but will still doctor it up a bit until I think it is perfect.
This was very easy to make but I did not like the strong taste of the chili sauce
Pretty good, my kids loved it, but I thought it was missing something....not sure what though.
