Crockpot Sloppy Joes - 21 Day Fix Friendly!

Crockpot Sloppy Joes are SO easy to make, and weeknight-dinner friendly for the whole family.

The flavors for my recipe come out with a nice garlic taste with a slightly sweet taste, too.  To add a little kick, you can add a little hot sauce to the meat while it’s doing its thing in the slow-cooker.

21 Day Fix Crockpot Sloppy Joes

21 Day Fix Crockpot Sloppy Joes

  • 8 red containers of ground turkey or lean ground beef, cooked
  • 4 purple containers of organic tomato sauce
  • 4 tbsp. organic tomato paste
  • 2 onions, diced fine
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp. mustard
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 packets Stevia
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • (Whole-wheat deli flats)
In a large skillet on medium-high heat, brown the ground turkey or beef.  Once browned, drain any excess fat. Brown diced onion.
Put the cooked ground turkey/beef into the slow cooker.
In a measuring cup or mixing bowl, combine all of the other ingredients.  Combine this well so everything is thoroughly mixed. Pour the sauce over the ground beef in the slow cooker and stir it to coat everything.
Set the slow cooker to cook for 5 hours on LOW.  Once finished, stir the meat and sauce again. Serve on toasted whole-wheat deli flats.
(Makes 8 servings.  For the 21 Day Fix, each serving counts as: 1 red, 1/2 purple, 1/2 green, and the whole-wheat deli flat counts as 1 yellow container.  The tomato paste isn't really 21 Day Fix approved, but the amount is so small, I've chosen to ignore it in my counts.)
