Decided to try this recipe since it didn't call for ketchup and all kinds of sugar and I'm so glad I did. It's good but (thankfully) not sweet like so many sloppy joe recipes. Since I was also testing this recipe to see if my grandkids would like it, I didn't add the green pepper but will if I'm only making it for myself. I cooked it uncovered and it was just right after 15 minutes, not too sloppy at all.

This recipe is awesome. I liked the fact that it didn't call for ketchup because I don't like ketchup. I made two batches... one with ground meat and one with morningstar ground meat. I added diced carrot and celery to both, which helped stretch the meat a bit. Once the sauce is made, you don't really notice the added veggies. My husband loved this recipe. I could eat it as is w/o the bun. I will certainly be making this again.

This was very tasty! I used TVP instead of ground beef and Truvia instead of sugar. I also used no salt added tomato sauce and paste. This was very easy to make and tasted fabulous!
