This seems to be a family favorite. Considering now I have made them THREE times in the past month, I would say they are a hit. Today I am sharing how to make Sloppy Joes in the pressure cooker.


I of course used my Instant Pot. So many amazing and tasty meals I have learned to make for my family and friends. If you want to make anything beef related, Where’s the BEEF? You can find my all things Beef recipes in the Instant Pot HERE.

For this Sloppy Joe recipe if  you are looking to reduce the fat and calories, feel free to use ground turkey. It won’t compromise the taste at all. I have made them with both variations and myself and the family enjoy them just the same.
