  • These Dr. Pepper Sloppy Joes are really tasty and very simple to prepare. The classic tastes of Sloppy Joe are enhanced with a hint of sweetness from the Dr. Pepper. It doesn’t taste like a distinct ingredient to you.
  • It’s that flavor that lingers in the background and is difficult to identify. Try this instead of your typical sloppy joes for a change!

Must I drink the Dr. Pepper?

  • It won’t be a Dr Pepper Sloppy Joe recipe if you don’t use Dr Pepper, but you may substitute a standard cola if you’d like.

How can I cut down on time?

  • Even though this recipe is already rather quick, you can save a bit more time by cooking the frozen peppers and onions rather than chopping and preparing the fresh ones.



Can I use a crock pot to prepare this?

  • Yes. Sauté the ground beef, onion, and peppers.
  • Garlic is added and cooked until aromatic. After the fat has been drained, transfer the mixture to a 4-quart slow cooker.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients after adding them.
  • Cook on low for four to six hours with a cover on.
  • See the recipe linked here for Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes for extra tips and tricks.


How should leftover food be kept?

  • Your cooled leftovers can be frozen for up to three months or stored in an airtight container for up to three days.

Ingredients required: 


  • salted butter; if you only have unsalted butter, that’s okay too. After everything is finished, I’d recommend tasting the Sloppy Joe mixture to make sure you’ve added enough salt to your taste. Here, margarine can also be utilized.
  • Leave off the green bell pepper and onion if you don’t like any or both of them.
  • Garlic: If you’d rather, you can use garlic that has been jarred for this dish.
  • Ground turkey, ground pig, or ground chicken can be substituted for the ground beef.
  • Tomato sauce: You may buy low-sodium or now varieties if you’re wanting to limit your intake of salt.


  • As previously said, you can use normal cola for Dr. Pepper. I haven’t tried it with a Dr Pepper on the diet. I never test a dish with diet drinks because we don’t consume them.
  • But if you give it a shot, do let me know how it turns out! Heinz ketchup is our family’s favorite, so I always use it. Use ketchup that you enjoy using.
  • Once more, you can choose ketchup with little or no salt. You can use normal vinegar in place of apple cider vinegar.
  • Similar to Dr. Pepper, Worcestershire sauce adds a delicious layer to food without being noticeable as a separate ingredient.
