  • I cook & drain my ground beef (I usually cook some onions in with the meat). Add some mustard, chili powder, black pepper, a little water, and ketchup til it looks right. Add more pepper/chili if need be. I don't add veggies besides the onions.

  • I have used the sloppy joe mix in the package by the spices and you add tomato paste and water and its really good. I hate manwich, that is so gross.

  • i loved the cheeseburg joe recipe i found in a kraft book.
    cook and drain the ground beef.. then half cup ketchup and half cup bbq sauce of your choice (or or less of either to taste) cook on low 5-10 mins, slap on a bun with a slice of cheese and enjoy.

  • Sloppy JoJos in the crockpot
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    1 large yellow onion, diced
    1 celery stalk diced
    1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped (if you have sensitive skin, wear gloves)
    1 red or green pepper, seeded and diced
    2 tsps. chili powder
    1/2 tsp. allspice
    1-1/2 cups brown lentils, rinsed (not red lentils)
    14-1/2 oz diced tomatoes (I use muir glen fire roasted, if I have them)
    3 cups water or vegetable broth
    2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce or tamari or braggs
    1 tbsp. prepared yellow or brown mustard
    1 tbsp. sugar to cut the acid
    1 tsp. salt or to taste and add at the end of cooking.
    Fresh pepper to taste (I use cayenne pepper)

  • Heat the oil in a skillet (I do this all in the crockpot) and saute the onion, celery, jalapeno pepper, and red or green pepper and chili powder for a few minutes until onion and celery are tender but still firm. Transfer the mixture to the crockpot. Add the lentils, tomatoes, water, soy sauce, mustard and sugar. Add pepper. Stir. Add the salt at the end, this
    keeps the lentils from taking long to cook and becoming tough. Cover the crockpot, set it on low and cook for 7-8 hours. Or 1 hr on high and 6-7 on low. Serve on whole wheat buns and have a lot of napkins.
