I''m making these for the second time tonight! This is the first meal (except pizza) that my entire family will all eat! Very easy, very quick, very tasty! I found a half hour to 45 minutes plenty of time to simmer. Thanks, Dana, for a real keeper!

This was real comfort food...with toasted hamburger buns, green beans and tater tots, it was the type of old-fashioned dinner my husband loves. These Sloppy Joes are very easy to prepare; the directions are simple and straightforward. The only changes I made were to cut back on the salt (I figured we could add more at the table if we wished) and after 45 minutes of simmering I thought it was ready. Very tasty, Dana, and a dish I will definitely make again!

Dana, Dana, Dana...what can I say except YUM! Didn't have wine vinegar so I used red cooking wine, which came out fine. Only cooked about 45 minutes. Hubby and I loved them. Will make again for when his children come over for dinner. Thanx!!!

I've tried many home-made sloppy joe recipies and this is by far the best. I did have to add a lot of water too it, though, to keep it from drying out while simmering. Maybe because I didn't add much onion? It was great anyway.

Tasty, simple, economical,& family pleasing meal. I already have a favorite Sloppy Joe recipe, but I thought I would give this one as try as it is a bit different. My family enjoyed this version just as well and gobbled them up quickly. One thing I especially liked about these is how thick the sauce is - everything holds together nicely and doesn't spill out the back of your bun quite as easily as most Sloppy Joe recipes. Thank you for a quick & tasty meal!

Dana, these were wonderful. I had already chosen this as a recipe I wanted to try the next time our niece and nephew were here and they just happened to come during the Danathon ! Dana they loved it and they really are picky eaters. I also explained to them that this was a special meal for you. This is bound to become one of our traditional meals when they visit.

My Zaar Family this was easy. I knew I would have to double the recipe because of our family size. It went over great. The children kept on saying this is way better than Manwich. So I know we will have it over and over...Yet another KEEPER for sure. Thank You Dana for sharing.

Well Dana, I'm with your daughter, cause I just loved this recipe. No one ingredient overpowered the other. Just a nice blend of flavors. This was delicious and I plan on making this a lot this summer when company with chidren come visiting. Very simple and easy to make. Thank you Dana. Chuck

Dana, I can certainly understand your daughter loving this Sloppy Joe recipe! I could see from first bite that this was developed for a child's tastes. The ketchup gives it a certain sweetness that I'm sure kids appreciate!

I made these this weekend for two very picky granddaughters who gobbled them up with no problem. I'll definitely make them again as my husband also thought they were excellent. I might ease up just a bit next time on the vinegar. Otherwise they were perfect.
