  • 2 lbs 90/10 Ground Beef
  • ½ medium Yellow Onion (chopped)
  • 1 medium Green Bell Pepper (chopped)
  • 1 ¼ cup Ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Cider Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon fresh Ground Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 2 teaspoon Salt


  • 8 Hamburger Buns


  • Crumble ground beef and spread it out across the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Combine all remaining sloppy joe ingredients in a dish and pour over the meat. (Optionally: You can add all of the ingredients to the crock pot and stir them together later)
  • Cook on high for 4 hours, or at least until meat is cooked through.
  • Use a potato masher to crumble the beef and stir the sauce.
  • This can be left on the 'Warm' setting until you are ready to eat. Serve on hamburger buns.


Tip: The meat and vegetables will release liquid while cooking, the flour combats that and acts as a thickener. If your sauce is too thin you can add more flour and let it cook for 30 more minutes.
