Slow Cooker Turkey Sloppy Joes

  • Cooking Time:

    3–4 hours
  • Servings:



1 T. veg­etable oil
1 onion, large, fine­ly chopped
2 cloves of gar­lic, fine­ly chopped
1–1/2 lb. ground turkey
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. chili pow­der
2 tsp. packed light brown sug­ar
8 oz. can toma­to sauce
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 tsp. hot sauce

Using ground turkey instead of ground beef reduces the fat in this recipe for Slow Cook­er Turkey Slop­py Joes.  You can sub beef or even ground chick­en if you pre­fer.  Either way, this easy recipe is a pleas­er and easy to dou­ble or triple for a crowd.

    1. Heat oil in a large skil­let over medi­um heat. Saute the onion and gar­lic until soft­ened.
    2. Turn heat up to medi­um high and add the ground turkey, salt and chili pow­der. Cook until turkey is no longer pink, about 5 min­utes.
    3. Trans­fer the mix­ture to your slow cook­er. Stir in the brown sug­ar, toma­to sauce, ketchup. water and hot sauce.
    4. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 3–4 hours.

Serve on buns.

Hi! How many would this serve?


Maybe it’s just me, but I think it would be real­ly help­ful if you could let us know what size crock­pot you use for a spe­cif­ic recipe. I just put all the ingre­di­ents in for the slop­py joes, and it only fills my crock­pot about 1/4 of the way. I’m wor­ried it won’t cook prop­er­ly now. 🙁
