DH & 2DS approved! This made for a quick weeknight meal. My only additions/substitutions were using A1 (didn't have Heinz 57 steak sauce) and a good dash of garlic powder. Thanks for posting, Ed&Theresa!

This stuff is really good when I made it DH and DS said they were better than our local BBQ place and I agree. I made half the recipe and it came out just perfect, not too spicy or bland just right. This one is a keeper. Thanks

I can certainly see why it's a family favorite! My DH, the "sloppy joe" connoissseur, proclaimed these better than his favorite canned variety - high praise indeed. ;-) Made just as written and served over toasted whole wheat buns, this was a quick and easy dinner that everyone loved! Thanks so much for posting this recipe that is SURE to be used often in my kitchen!
