A slow cooker recipe for BBQ beef sloppy joes. Savory and sweet, these are the bomb!!


  • 1 1/2 lb ground beef

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. Add the ground beef to a large sauté pan. Cook over medium heat, using a spatula to break up the meat. Add the minced onion and a pinch of salt. Cook until meat is brown and onions is soft. Remove from heat and drain off any excess fat.
