Sloppy Joe's: Make & Keep Warm in VitaClay (and a Hack)

Like pulled pork sandwiches or cooking out, sloppy joe's are a great, easy, delicious choice for a party food. And there just happens to be a day coming up in which you may or may not be throwing (or going to) a party. Sloppy Joe's are yummy, easy, and a crowd pleaser - especially when the crowd consists primarily of men who are otherwise distracted by a football game. Just give them some meat on bread and they’ll be happy, the women can eat something else in the other room if they want to.

If they guys are full and in front of the TV, they probably wouldn’t even notice if a few of the girls slipped away to watch a movie. (Seriously I like football but I get it). So I like sloppy joe's, mostly because they are yummy and really easy to make. But sometimes I still like to cheat and just use barbecue sauce. So, if you’re really crunched for time, or you just really like barbecue sauce, you can sub that in for all of the ingredients + ground beef. I do that. So don’t feel bad.


  • 2 lb ground beef (grass-fed! Or get creative with bison, elk, wild boar, venison…)
  • 1 c celery, chopped
  • ½ c onion, chopped
  • ½ c chopped mushrooms (optional)
  • 10-12 oz tomato soup or tomato sauce
  • 1/4 c ketchup
  • 1 T vinegar (I like this one)
  • ¼ c coconut sugar
  • 1 ½ t Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ t salt
  • ¼ t garlic powder
  • 8 hamburger buns


  1. Add ground meat and all other ingredients to the VitaClay pot.
  2. Close and cover, setting to “stew” and cook for 30 minutes
  3. Keep it on warm until ready to serve onto bread straight out of the clay pot.
