There are two things that make these slow cooker hotdog sloppy joes unique. One is it maintains the beef texture by eviscerating onions in the food processor before adding to the beef being browned in the skillet and by skipping the peppers altogether. The other is it’s served in a hotdog bun rather than a burger bun to make it easier to eat. This simple yet fabulous recipe is from Chelsea of A Duck’s Oven.


1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup finely minced onion
1 tsp minced garlic
1 15 oz can of tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp yellow mustard
Hot dog or hamburger buns


  1. Brown the ground beef in a large skillet. Drain off most of the fat. Add the onions and garlic and cook until onions are translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  2. In the crock pot, combine all remaining ingredients except buns and butter. Add the ground beef mixture and stir to combine. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  3. When beef is ready to serve, butter buns. Broil until tops are golden brown, about 1 minute.
  4. Spoon the ground beef onto the buns and serve. Enjoy!
