Crock Pot Sloppy Joe (recipe)

This is one of my kids’ favorite recipes and rather than have to hunt it down next time I want to whip up  a batch, I am going to jot the recipe down here and keep track of this family favorite. Super easy in the slow cooker, and great to share with neighbors and friends.

Crock Pot Sloppy Joe (updated 5/21/2013)

Originally from


  • 3 pounds of ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes, or 3 tsp beef stock base
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 6 ounces tomato paste
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 3 TBS apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1 tsp dried mustard
  1. Brown beef in a skillet, discard extra fat. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low 6-8 hours, or high 3-4 hours (or whatever works best for your slow cooker).
  2. Serve over hamburger buns or pasta. We like the mini-buns from Trader Joes. I also liked grated cheese on mine!
Can be doubled easily, depending on the size of your slow cooker. And leftovers can be frozen for a later date.
