Sloppy Joes

READY IN: 8hrs 45mins
Recipe by Chef on the coast

I had been searching for a sloppy joe recipe we all would like and happened on this one. love this recipe as I can prepare it and forget about it! It makes getting dinner on the table a breeze. All my family loves it - AND it freezes well. The recipe actually makes enough for a couple meals - so why not go ahead and freeze some for a future meal? I found the recipe online from Better Homes and Gardens. I downsized it to fill our family's needs.

I did not read down in the instructions (oops) that this was a crockpot recipe. I already had the ingredients so after my meat cooked and all ingredients were in, I covered my skillet and cooked on high for a couple minutes to really get the peppers cooked down. Then I kept on medium heat for 8 minutes. They still turned out great without the crockpot!
