Crock Pot Sloppy Joes for a Crowd

READY IN: 6hrs 20mins
Recipe by Hippie2MARS

I made these for a potluck at work and they were a definite hit! One thing I didn't put in the recipe: instead of using 1 bell pepper, I usually use 1/2 cup of tri-pepper mix. It's just red, yellow and green bell peppers, already diced. Publix sells it in their produce section. It's a real time saver!

Although I am not particularily fond of "red sauce" BBQ's when I saw this recipe I had to try! and I did... I went out on a limb and made this for my husband's surprise 50th Birthday Party.. I figured the recipe for 60.. then doubled a single recipe x2 if that makes sense. It was delicious and even better a day later... I didn't use the nutmeg and I was short on tomato sauce but will even cut back on liquid somehow next It was a little runnier than I like... With that being said... 5 STARS!! EXCELLENT and thank you very much for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the hamburger with the onions, garlic and peppers until the meat is cooked and the onions are clear.
  2. Drain well (I just leave mine in the colander draining while I prepare the sauce).
  3. In the crock pot, whisk together all the remaining ingredients.
  4. Fold in the hamburger mixture. Stir to coat.
  5. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
