Add extra seasonings if you want for a burst of extra flavor! When the meat cools down a bit it’ll be less saucy. So if you like saucy sloppy joes, then eat it while it’s still warm!Using a leaner meat will reduce the amount of fat in the final sloppy joes. Pressure cookers keep everything contained so the fat liquids don't get cooked off at all.
2pounds(907g)ground beef(preferrably a leaner meat)
Turn Instant Pot on "Sauté”. Add oil. Sauté onions and garlic until soft and fragrant. Add beef. Cook beef mixture for about 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Add ketchup, tomato sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, salt and pepper. Give the mixture a good stir.
Close the lid and pressure cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. (These are the steps we did for our Instant Pot: Close lid and close pressure release valve. Press "Cancel" to stop the "Sauté" setting. Press the "Manual" button. Set the time to 10 minutes.)
After the cooking time is complete, press "Cancel" and carefully release the pressure.Serve the beef mixture between the bread and add your optional favorite toppings like cheese or pickles.
For Slow Cooker
In slow cooker add all the sloppy joe ingredients except for the olive oil (ground beef, onion, garlic, ketchup, tomato sauce, mustard, worcestershire, salt and pepper). Gently mix together all the ingredients to make everything combine well.
Cover and cook the mixture on low for 7 hours or about 4 hours on high. After cooked, give the sloppy joe mixture a good stir. Serve the sloppy joe mixture between the bread and add your optional favorite toppings like cheese or pickles.
