Crockpot Sloppy Joes

This is a little bit different Sloppy Joe recipe that the previous one. I usually make a big patch of this and freeze some of it so when I need a quick meal I just have to unfreeze it and warm it up. So get your Crockpot out and let us get cooking! This recipe is also very easy to make as low carb version.

This is what you will need:

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 400g Italian Sausage
  • 400g ground beef
  • 1 can  tomato sauce
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 green bell peppers finely chopped
  • 2 tbls apple vinegar
  • 2 tbls yellow mustard
  • 1 tbls Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika powder
  • 1 can Mutti pizza sauce
  • 1 can Mutti cherry tomato
  • 3 tbls beef fond or 2 Knorr Bouillon pur
  • salt and pepper after taste
  • flour and water to thicken

For serving: salad,cheddar cheese and Jalapeno peppers

  1. In a large skillet fry ground beef and the Italian sausage. Cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until it is no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add this mixture to your slow cooker. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Cover and cook slowly on low for 7 hours or on high for 4 hours.
  3. Mix 200ml flour with 300ml water and about 20 min. prior to finishing mix the flour with warm water and whisk into the sloppy joes. Turn to high and let bubble and thicken. If you want to make this low carb leave the flour out and let the sauce boil one hour without the lid in order to thicken.
  4. Place a large spoonful on the bottom of a hamburger bun. Top with cheddar cheese and run quickly under a broiler. Top with the other bun and serve. The low carb option is to eat this with salad leaves or cauliflower mash.

I served the Sloppy Joes with my special Cheddar and Jalapeno burger buns. They are baked with this recipe: Jalapeno and Cheddar bread. The recipe gives you two big loaves of bread, so I recommend to half the recipe for the burger buns.
