aka Un-tidy Josephs. Cooks a longer time; makes the sauce de-licious! This will freeze! UPDATE: I've reduced the amount of Worcestershire sauce due to reviewers' responses. Add more *originally 1/8 cup* if you like. :)

This is really good. I reduced the amount of worchestershire down to 1 Tbsp and added a tsp of minced garlic. Those were the only changes I made...just thought 1/8 c worchestershire might be too much and added garlic because of other reviewers' suggestion. Hubby not too wild for sloppy joes but loved these,making these again after 2 weeks. thanks for great recipe!!! October 04, 2011

We really liked it. I omitted the vinegar and chili powder. W/o them it was closer to how my mom used to make it. My son liked it and my 20 mo old ate the entire bun full I gave her. I was shocked. she usually never eats the whole thing. This recipe is a keeper!
