Mealthy Tip

Legend has it, the original "Sloppy Joe" sandwich was served in Sioux City, Iowa in the 1930's. It was a loose meat sandwich made with ground meat, onions, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings, and served on a hamburger bun. It was created by a cook named Joe and the rest is American culinary history!

The rolled oats in the sloppy joe was a nice addition to thicken the sauce. Just a delicious and messy sandwich. Had a ton of leftovers, so decided to wrap the remainder in lettuce cups for the rest of the week.

I loved sloppy Joe's as a kid and this recipe just brought back all of the good childhood feels. Not only does it taste amazing, but it is so quick to make, perfect for after work when you want something good and hearty but don't want a lot of labor and cleaning afterwards.

I made this dish and was really surprised how well it turned out. You can't even taste the oatmeal in the recipe. The sauce was the perfect consistency. Overall it was hearty, rich, and down right delicious comfort food.

Excellent recipe. I’ve made a lot of sloppy joe since becoming a dad, and this one is among the best I’ve had. The boys liked it, so that's good enough for me. I added a pinch of chipotle powder to the mixture for a hint of smoky spiciness. Was just enough to make it interesting for the adults without overwhelming the kids. Served on toasted cornmeal-dusted kaiser rolls & with tater tots, of course!

When I saw oatmeal, I'll admit I was a skeptic. Well, I am not at all disappointed with the way this recipe turned out. The meat sauce was extra thick and bulky, which resulted in perfect sloppy joe meat. I can snuck in carrots (not peppers) that my kids would otherwise not eat. I think from start to finish the cooking time for this was under 45 minutes, including the time it takes for the pressure to rise.

My family loved this recipe. I love that it didn’t have ketchup like many other recipes do and it wasn’t sweet. I did cut the oatmeal amount in half as I found it kind of weird, the meal still tasted delicious and you can’t really tell there’s oatmeal in there!

Super easy and great recipe. Couldn’t even tell the oats were in there; I asked my husband to guess the secret ingredient and he couldn’t! I like the addition of oats for an extra nutritional value for my son! Will definitely make again!

It had a different kind of taste. My family still ate it but I won’t make it again.

Carol Wagner says:

Yum! We made it as directed, except we used a full can of diced tomatoes and tomato paste. We had it in bowls, like a chili. This is a keeper!

Steve Lindberg says:

Hmmmm too much sour with both vinegar and worcheschire sauce. More my fault for not tempering ingredients, but I’ll get it right next time around.

The ingredient list is not showing for this recipe, just the instructions. I found the complete recipe online at this link, for anyone interested in trying this.

I added one Tbs of brown sugar for some sweetness. We like to serve this in small bags of chips with toppings (pickles, jalapeños, cheese) for walking sloppy joes. It’s fun for our family to try different combos that suit their tastes.

Would this be good over rice?

Add me to the list of oatmeal-skeptics— but as others have said the oatmeal essentially disappeared into the deliciousness! All the kids (4) and adults (3) in my house loved this. We all felt it was way better than a traditional sloppy Joe with ketchup. Can be easily tweaked to sweetness or spiciness per one’s tastes. Best of all— easy to make! I meal prep on Sunday’s and cooked the ground turkey then, threw all the other ingredients in a ziploc bag. Come dinner night, toss it all in the pressure cooker and it was ready when we got home from sports. Definitely a new favorite in our house!
