Sloppy Sliders


This dish is a great go to meal on those crazy nights.  You could even make it ahead of time and just reheat.  The kids will love it and have fun with the slider size.  This recipe comes from Chef Phillip Yates from the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.  He shared the recipe on a recent episode of Good Things Utah.  I figured if a fancy chef from a swanky hotel can make sloppy joes, then I must give them a try.

I did make a few adaptions to the recipe.  The biggest change being the use of ground beef instead of ground turkey.  They were delicious.  Loved by all in this house.  It is made with very simple ingredients and makes a yummy sweet sauce.

Sloppy Sliders

  • 1 lb. ground beef (can use ground turkey if you prefer)

  • 1 tsp garlic, diced

  1. Cook beef, onions, pepper and garlic together in skillet over medium heat until cooked thoroughly.
  2. Mix in ketchup, brown sugar, dry mustard, Worcestershire, and tomato juice and simmer for a few minutes to warm the sauce.

  • This was in the freezer meals section how to freeze and reheat? … Thanks

  • Thank you so much for this recipe!!! I have never been a fan of sloppy joes, so every time my husband asks me to make them I balk. well I found your blog and this recipe last night while making my shopping list, and thought to myself “I could at least TRY this one” and whipped this up in no time for lunch today, and it was SO good! my husband would like me to try a spicy mustard next time, instead of the dry mustard, but he likes a little kick! :)

    We WILL be making these again! Thanks so much!

  • How fortuitous that I found your blog today because I have plans on making sloppy joes for dinner tonight! Now I don’t need to go searching for a recipe :) thank you! You have a great blog, I look forward to reading more from you.
