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.

Preparation time: 20 minute(s)

Cooking time: 6-8 hour(s)

    Self tanning products can be used at home, or one can take professional help by going to a
    salon. You can buy swimsuits in floral and island prints
    to add more fun to your look at the beach.
    It is preferable to use a moisturizer that is meant for a sunless tanned skin.

    Hi! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
