A slowcooker full of these Super Sloppy Joes are the perfect addition to your football bash, or simply supper this week.
To begin, dice a red bell pepper and an onion.
In a large skillet, sauté the onion & pepper in a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil over medium heat until tender.
Add in 2 pounds of ground beef (I used 1 lb beef, 1 lb bison) and cook until browned, breaking it up with your spoon.
When the meat is browned, drain off any excess grease. I use lean beef, so I rarely need to drain anything. Place the meat mixture in your crockpot.
Add in a teaspoon of hot paprika, and a half teaspoon each of roasted coriander, garlic powder, salt & pepper.
Add in 3 tablespoons of tomato paste, a tablespoon each of Worcestershire sauce and red wine vinegar, and 1/4 cup brown sugar.
About 4 or 5 dashes of tobasco or other hot pepper sauce.
And finally, 15 ounces of tomato sauce.
Stir this all together. Cover and cook it on high for 3 hours or low for 5-6 hours.
Enjoy the sandwiches made on your favorite rolls, with a slice of cheese if you like.
Serve them with some fries, pickles or maybe some potato salad.

Sloppy Joes, the food of my 1970’s childhood but your version is so much better!

I love crockpot recipes!!! and hello?! Hungarian hot paprika? I’m so intrigued! Is it a lot hotter than other paprika you’ve used?
I love sloppy joes, really just love them. I’ve been working on a vegetarian version, and it’s just not the same. I love your recipe Constance – I love that Hungarian Paprika and love spicy foods!!
Brings back such fond memories of university, they made killer SJs
I just recently had my first sloppy joe! These look great!
Such a classic! Looks awesome!
I bet they are so delicious and easy, and sloppy. :)
Your Sloppy Joes look PERFECT! They would definitely finish very quickly in my house!
Oh my what a crockpot full of goodness. Love the hot paprika and hot sauce you used. It’s totally my kind of sloppy joes!
I adore Sloppy Joes and this this recipe sounds really good. Love the addition of the paprika and the hot sauce. Have to try this one soon. Thanks for sharing.
I’m such a dork when I eat sloppy joes. I tend to by buns that haven’t been cut, then I only cut them 1/4 way and stuff my sloppy joe stuff inside. That way, less sloppy in my joes! Or if I do eat them normal I make sure my fries or chips are under my burger so I get sloppy joe fries/chips!
I love that there is no ketchup in these! YUM…I must give these a try!
I have only ever had the Manwich kind of sloppy joe as a kid, but homemade looks wayyy better!
You just turned me into a Sloppy Joe wannabe! These look great!
I have to make these, wow they look great!!
Once I saw the hungarian paprika I knew this was for me!
I love paprika – I think it is an underappreciated spice :)
