Sloppy Joes are all about the sauce. I made this version with a sauce so sweet and wonderful I had to name them after Jerry. These are perfect to prepare in the morning on a lazy summer day, when you don’t want to be indoors cooking over a hot stove. There’s nothing better than arriving home after a day at the beach to a smell that will have you and the kids lining up for dinner. Toast up some PD Burger Buns from the freezer and dinner is served. I hope this recipe gives all the hard working moms and dads a chance to go play and have fun this summer.
Can I use the same beans that are use in the beef-less taco filling for this recipe?
I’ve never tried them.
using the Instant Pot, slow cooker setting. How should the vent be set?
Always open the vent when using the pressure cooker as a slow cooker. Ideally a slow cooker lid should be used on the pressure cooker to allow for more liquid to evaporate.
Can this be made with pressure?
These were so good! I could’ve eaten the whole crockpot full! My kids and husband loved them and my husband went back for seconds. I love the sweet and spicy flavor. It reminds me of the sloppy joes my mom used to make for my birthday parties. This one is a winner!
I forgot to add that I mashed them a little bit with a potato masher, to make them a little less sloppy.
I am using canned lentils. Do I use 2 cups of cooked lentils?
This recipe is designed using dried lentils. To use canned reductions and adjustments would need to be made to liquid measurements, because canned lentils would not absorb all the liquid in the recipe resulting in soupy Jerry’s. This would not be something I’d be confident suggesting without testing and trying first. For best results I suggest holding off making this until after you pick up some dried lentils.
I freeze the leftovers in baggies frozen flat. Defrost , Add pasta sauce, corn, diced tomatoes or any veggies. Then mix in cooked pasta to make a delicious easy meal.
What a great idea! I will travel with my frozen Sloppy Jerry leftovers! Thanks!!!
My teen liked this and we both ate it for days. Very satisfying. Jerry, you picked a winner for your namesake!
Tried these again today while cleaning out the freezer. We threw in about 4 handfuls of spinach and mushroom into the blender with the sauce. The sauce was a scary green at first, but then turned sloppy Jerry brown. Still tasted terrific! Our family really likes this recipe.
Also, I followed your link to purchase Erythritol, and right before check out this showed up in the description of what I was purchasing…”CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.” Now, I know that often times companies are required to add warnings that don’t really pertain to the product, but I wanted to get your input before buying it. Thank you.
Julie Marie….any response?
My apologies for missing your questions. All of the research about this product proves it to be a safe product and I am more than comfortable including it in my diet. Here is a video to back up it’s safety:http://nutritionfacts.org/video/erythritol-may-be-a-sweet-antioxidant/

I hope these viedos and reviews are helpful.
Thanks for the info. Can you tell me which video I am looking for? There are plenty to choose from (which I am grateful for), but I don’t seem to be able to find one specific video for info about erythritol (and it could be one I have already watched, but I don’t know which one it is). Thank you.
Perhaps I misunderstood one of your videos. I thought you don’t use erythritol – maybe I am mixing it up with another sugar alcohol?
I do use erythritol in some recipes. This is unlike other sugar alcohols and made from non GMO corn. It digests and doesn’t cause digestive issues like the others that pass though the system undigested. Please see the video tab for more information about erythritol.
Tried this recipe for the first time today. It’s a winner! Just the right combination of spicey and sweetness, the best vegan sloppy ‘joe’ filling I’ve had yet! I didn’t have the erythritol, so I subbed stevia, and it was delicious. Julie Marie, you’re a genius!
These are absolutely delicious! It’s been so long since I’ve had them, that I don’t exactly remember what traditional “Sloppy Joes” taste like, but these Sloppy Jerrys are wonderful and SO simple. They taste better than any Sloppy Joe recipe I could ever imagine trying. Throw together in the morning and come home to dinner that is all ready and smells divine! Another awesome recipe from Julie!
