I was never a big fan of Sloppy Joe’s – until I came up with this recipe.
You know how we do. We try a recipe. It’s OK, but not great, so we tweak it. Eventually, you arrive at the correct “tweak”. The one you really like. It’s called “a keeper”.
This Zippy Sloppy Joe recipe is my “keeper”. But I’ll share it with you.
In a slow cooker, it’s very easy. After a day away from home, come in and smell the goodness. Dinner’s ready. 🙂
Let’s make it together, OK? Sauté chopped onion in olive oil until slightly brown.
Add ground beef (or round) and brown thoroughly.
Wow, I’ve never taken a picture of steam before. Drain grease from pan and spoon meat into slow cooker.
Mix remaining ingredients together, pour over meat, and stir to blend.
Cook on low for 3-4 hours. If you need to be away from the house for longer, cook on low for an hour, then turn temperature to warm. You can leave it all day, letting the flavors slowly blend.
- 2 Tbsp Olive oil
- 1 large onion, rough chopped
- 1½ pounds ground beef - I like ground round
- ½ cup water
- 3 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 cup Heinz 57 Steak Sauce
- ⅓ cup Sorghum molasses
- Saute chopped onion in olive oil until tender. Add ground meat and brown. Strain away any fatty juices. Place cooked meat and onions in slow cooker.
- Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl to create a sauce.
- Pour sauce over the meat and cook on low for 3-4 hours.
- Serve on hamburger buns.
I can hardly wait for you to try it. On butter-toasted buns, it is delicious. A little tangy, sweet, zesty – zippy! Enjoy, y’all!

Tomorrow, I’ll share the recipe for Baked Sweet Potato Fries, also pictured on the plate with the Zippy Sloppy Joes. (By the way, the salad on the plate is my Southern Chickpea Salad I shared with you last week.)
I hope to see y’all tomorrow. Thanks for visiting!
