Updated June 28, 2021

Ingredients

  • 3 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 (12-oz.) bottle chili sauce
  • 1 (6-oz.) can tomato paste
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 16 sandwich buns, split

Steps

  • 1
    In large skillet, cook ground beef, onions, celery and bell pepper over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.
  • 2
    In 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker, combine ground beef mixture and all remaining ingredients except buns; mix well.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on low setting for 4 to 6 hours.
  • 4
    Stir; spoon beef mixture into buns.

  • Sloppy Joes are perfect for busy-day meals and casual dinner parties because the filling is easily prepared ahead. Flavors improve while the filling rests in the refrigerator for up to a day.
  • Try Sloppy Joe Shortcakes: Bake one can (16.3 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers Buttermilk Biscuits as directed on the label. Split the hot biscuits in half. Spoon the meat mixture onto biscuit bottoms; cover with biscuit tops; sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese.
  • Serve the Sloppy Joe filling over cooked ravioli. Pass the pepper mill and a bowl of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
