The recipe I'm sharing with you today isn't technically a slow cooker recipe, but because I do use the Slow Cooker with it and it's a favorite at my house, I'm going to share it. This is my Sloppy Joe recipe. It's really easy, and it makes the best sloppy joes I've had. This is a regular Sunday night supper at our house. It works great for me to make on Saturday, then heat in the crock pot on Sunday afternoon for supper.
2 pound hamburger, browned and drained
1/2 cup chopped onion, optional
4 tablespoons corn starch
2 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup water
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup catsup
2 tablespoons mustard
Put browned hamburg and onions in bowl (I use my slow cooker crock) and microwave on high until hot. Add cornstarch, salt and sugar and stir together. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together. Microwave on high for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce thickens. This recipe reheats well, so may be refrigerated for later use or just place on low in slow cooker to keep warm.
