Better than Manwich Instant Pot Sloppy Joes

Why are these Instant Pot Sloppy Joes better than Manwich Sloppy Joes? It’s in the ingredients.....

Manwich Ingredients:
Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Distilled Vinegar, Corn Syrup, Less than 2% of: Salt, Sugar, Dried Green and Red Bell Peppers, Chili Pepper, Tomato Fiber, Guar Gum, Spices, Xanthan Gum, Dried Garlic, Natural Flavors, Citric Acid

Now who wants high fructose corn syrup, additives  and preservatives when you can make your own healthier homemade version in your Instant pot??? Makes 10 sandwiches Total Time: 30 minutes


2 pounds ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1 cup beef broth or water
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
8 hamburger buns
Sliced pickles, for topping (optional) 


Set Instant Pot to saute. Add the ground beef, garlic, red pepper and onion and cook until meat is no longer pink; drain, if needed. Add the ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, cider vinegar, water, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper, if using to the pot; mix well.

Place the cover on the pot and set timer to 5 minutes on high pressure (pressure cook setting). It will take the Instant Pot around 9 minutes to build up pressure before it begins cooking. When cooking is done, let it release naturally for 10 minutes then do a quick release. Remove cover, stir and let sit for 10 minutes before spooning into buns and serving. Top with pickle slices, if desired. Yum Yum!
