I made these Crockpot Sloppy Joes last night and they were amazing! I thought I would have enough leftovers for dinner tonight but they were ALL GONE! My kids were all part of the clean plate club- woot woot! Score one for team mom.
1 1/2 lbs ground beef or turkey
1 red or orange pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. ketchup
8 oz. tomato sauce
2 T. brown sugar
1 t. yellow mustard
2 T. worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
Saute the onion, pepper and garlic for 2 minutes. Add the meat and saute until meat is cooked through. Place the meat mixture in the crockpot and combine remaining ingredients, stirring well. Cook on low 4 hours.
I made this as a crockpot meal because I needed a fast dinner on the table come 5:00 when we got home from after school activities before I had to run out the door to class. You could easily make this as a regular skillet meal if you have more prep time in the evening.
Served with baked beans and a side salad.
