Pressure Cooker Sloppy Joes Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Sloppy Joes. Your first real memory of them may be from when you were in school. The mixture at my grade school always looked sort of grayish, and didn’t taste much better. Eventually my Mom made some sloppy joes with the help of canned Manwhich. Those tasted much better then the stuff at school. Pressure Cooker Sloppy Joes is a homemade version that’s similar to what you get if you follow Manwich instructions. The great thing is that the sloppy joes here are actually gluten-free by nature, so you can serve a gluten-free meal by using gluten-free bread. Or you can use regular bread and it’s not gluten-free. Either way, this is a mixture your kids are going to love. By making a big batch of this sloppy joe mixture in a large pressure cooker, you’ll have extra to make some other tasty dishes, which I will share with you over the next couple of days. Being able to use this mixture in several recipes makes it very versatile. Here’s how I make Pressure Cooker Sloppy Joes.

    Do you know I have never had sloppy joes and it was only recently I even found out what it is. I really should give it a whirl though.

    My grand kids love sloppy joes and so do I. I pick them up a couple of times a week from band practice and tonight is one of those nights. I was trying to figure out what to make them for supper and I’m going to try this.

    I have only ever tried the canned sloppy joes, it wasn’t great. most likely because it was canned, your recipe sounds amazing and fresh, I’ll be giving it a try!

    I have never used a pressure cooker before but I absolutely love my slow cooker and am in the market for an Instant Pot. Sounds like a great cooking resource for busy moms like me.

    I used to be scared of pressure cookers because of all those stories my mom told me about, like the pot exploding and you get really bad burns. I guess technology has corrected that and the pressure cooker nowadays are safer. I will try this sloppy joe recipe of yours. It looks so delicious!

    Love the fact that the pressure cooking method is healthy. Great to enjoy sloppy joes that pack in more healthy and are gluten free too.
