Okay, you know we can’t resist a good movie reference. Sloppy Joe’s are the quintessential family-friendly meal. Everyone loves them.

Our team has always been a fan of classic sloppy joes. That sweet and savory combination and just the crazy messy nature of eating them makes you feel like you’re eating something really good. We have a couple of pro tips for making them:

  • Definitely toast your buns. That crispy bread against the sloppy joe’s texture is just to die for
  • Don’t let the sauce reduce too much — no one likes a dry sloppy joe mixture
  • Definitely make extra, it freezes wonderfully for up to 4 months!

Can this be made in the crockpot? Yes! Brown the beef and add all the remaining ingredients (no buns though), and cook on LOW for about 4-6 hours, or HIGH for 2-3 hours. Using this method will create a softer texture than skillet sloppy joes though.
