Crockpot Tavern Sandwich

Yum
Have you ever had a Tavern before?? I have had this recipe for years, but never really new why it was named a "Tavern". It's very much like a "Sloppy Joe" or whatever name they may have in your region. Thanks again to Wikipedia for giving me the answer... Tavern Sandwich is a regional term originating from Iowa for a "Sloppy Joe". I lived in Iowa for years, and still live very close to Iowa, but I am sure I didn't get the recipe from any one I know in the area. Oh well. That's what I get for not keeping track of where my recipes come from!

This is a great crockpot recipe for your busy days. I brown the meat the night before, throw it all in the crockpot in the morning, and the guys could feed themselves! Have the slotted spoon close at hand, since these are super juicy. They go perfect on a crusty bun, and would be great with a side of mac and cheese!



Crockpot Tavern Sandwich

2 1/2 lbs lean ground beef
1 large onion - chopped
1 c. ketchup
1 t. chili powder
1 t. dry mustard
1 t. salt
1 t. Worcestershire Sauce
2 c. beef broth or water

In skillet, brown ground beef; drain well.  Place browned beef and remaining ingredients in crockpot.  Stir well to mix all ingredients.  Cover and cook on low setting for 8 - 10 hours.

Enjoy :)

  3. I have never heard "Sloppy Joes" called "Taverns" before. I am from Nebraska and they are sloppy joes. I married and moved to northwest South Dakota where they are called "Wimpies."

    My Sister lives northwest of Des Moines.

    1. Robyn, I have never heard of "Wimpies" before either! Interesting. My Gram who is in Northeast Iowa, does call them "Maid Rites". That is the only other name I have heard for them.

  10. Just a little hint (I hope you don't mind), but you may want to remove "word verification" from your blog. Many bloggers won't comment if its on there.

  14. I've never heard them called Taverns. Sloppy Joes, Maid Rights or Loose Meat Sandwiches. Whatever they're called, we love them.

    Curious how you came up with your blog title, it's a fun name.

  19. I grew up in northwest Iowa and we ate "taverns" all the time and called them that. I believe it was more of a northwest Iowa thing for those wondering.

    1. Carla - Thanks for the input! My days in Iowa, have always been in in the northeast part of the state. That must be how I missed out on these.
