"I grew up a Manwich® kid, thinking they were the same as sloppy joes. I was dead wrong. This is the real deal. Messy, yummy, kid-friendly perfection especially on a cold night."

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic in hot oil until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add ground beef; cook and stir until the beef is completely browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard grease from the skillet. Transfer beef mixture to a slow cooker.
  2. Stir Mexican-style hot tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, cider vinegar, and chili powder into the beef mixture.
  3. Cook on Low for 2 hours (or on High for 1 hour).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Butter your sandwich rolls and sprinkle garlic salt onto the butter; toast under broiler until just crispy. Assemble sandwiches and be thankful you're alive for this moment.

Good recipe but I made some modifications that I liked. Instead of the Mexican style tomato sauce I used tomato paste (140 g) and instead of the ketchup (sugar!) I used 330 g of plain canned tom...

This was the BEST Sloppy Joe recipe! I too grew up on canned sloppy joes. Ick Instead of a slow cooker, I used my simmer plate on my cooktop (2 hours). Served with Wickles Pickles, French's f...
