For a fuss-free dinner, you’ve got to try this crock pot recipe from Jenny of Dragonfly Home Recipes. Unlike some sloppy joe recipes, this one has a short list of ingredients that you probably already have in your fridge and pantry. Even picky eaters are sure to gobble these up.

1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons chili sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon vinegar
Hamburger buns

1. Brown the meat and onion in a large saucepan.

2. Using a slotted spoon, spoon the meat mixture into your crockpot, trying to leave most of the fat in the saucepan to discard. Place the rest of the ingredients in the crockpot and stir to combine. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.

3. Serve on buns with a salad and/or coleslaw. Enjoy!
