Crockpot Manwich is a delicious comfort food that your family will love. I love sloppy joes and it make me think of my childhood. My family use to make these along with macaroni and cheese. I like to serve our Crockpot Manwich on buns with a side of Homemade French Fries.
All you need for this easy dinner meal is 1 pound of ground beef, jar of your favorite sloppy Joe sauce and hamburger buns. The best thing about this slow cooker recipe is you do NOT have to cook the ground beef beforehand! It slowly cooks in the crockpot. Next time you are craving a sloppy Joe be sure to try this amazing Crockpot Manwich!
This easy recipe is perfect when you are feeding a large crowd. It can easily be doubled or even tripled. Simply increase the size of your slow cooker. If you are hosting a birthday party this would be an affordable menu idea. It is also perfect for game day and tailgating. I promise you once you try this method you will ever go back to using a skillet! I would also suggest using a crockpot liner for easy clean up.
Simply place the raw hamburger meat in the crockpot. Pour the sauce over the beef. Use a large spoon or spatula to break the meat up. Put the lid on and cook on low 8-10 hours or on high 3-4 hours. You can choose to stir halfway through or not. Serve on hamburger buns and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this Crockpot Manwich as much we did. It is an easy recipe for busy days. I use it for my go-to recipe when I don’t have anything planned for dinner but don’t want to go out to eat.

Does the meat for the manwich have to be cooked before I put it in the crockpot?
Sorry, I posted it before I read the rest, so sorry.
No uncooked! It is a great way to put it on and then head out and have it hot and ready for dinner.
Sloppy joes are excellent in the crock pot 🙂
Throw in some chopped green bell peppers and onions
Aren’t they greasy that way?
No but use a lean beef. We use 90/10 or Laura’s Lean Beef.
That’s what I would have thought
If I cook the burger and drain the grease how long on low til it’s done
Put the lid on and cook on low 8-10 hours or on high 3-4 hours.
How much do I need for a crowd of say 20 people
This serves 8 so I would triple to be safe.
Does meat need to be defrosted first?
No – you can place it in frozen. If possible I would try to stir it though and hour or two in.
Cooked it exactly as you said and it turned out nothing close to Manwich as far as flavor. First 8-10 hours is way too long, 6 hours max. Second, you didn’t mention removing the grease which is a must. My suggestions are cook the meat in the crockpot for about 5 hours, break it up, drain the grease then add the Manwich and cook for another hour. should turn out perfect.
That’s why it’s necessary to use lean ground beef. It’s such an excellent recipe.
