Dana! These just rock! The whole family agreed these are WAY better than any we've ever had! I love it that they're kind of tart! We served these on toasted buns with slices of American Cheese and dill pickles on the side. I'll never buy that canned stuff again! I don't make a lot of Sloppy Joes, but this was so easy, and very good...It's rare that I can find something the whole family is happy with. I'll be making these often! These were outstanding with your potato wedges....a big thanks from all of us for a great dinner!
Great sloppy joes, dana! Sometimes you just feel like a good old fashioned meal and these are just the ticket!
Thanks for the great recipe. It's really difficult to find something both the kids & the hubby like. This did it. Will be adding this one to my regulars.
LOVE this recipe! Kind of sweet, kind of spicey, not overly sloppy AND super easy to make!. Normally, when I eat sloppy joes I put them on both sides of the bun, top with parmesan cheese, and eat it openfaced with a fork and knife. Not these! They held together really well and I was able to eat them without the joes dripping out the sides of the bun. It's a keeper! BTW: I did top it with parmesan cheese.
I need to make these again before I rate with stars. I used 1.5lbs of ground beef and adjusted the recipe accordingly - BUT the result was very vinegary even after cooking down for 1 hour. Moral of the story: keep the vinegar at 2 tbs even if you increase the other ingredients.
This is an easy to put together recipe. After I cooked the beef with onions and put the sauce on top, I put it all in the slow cooker and set it on low. I cooked it for 2 hours and it stayed nice and moist. I added about a tablespoon of brown sugar to the sauce because I like a sweeter sauce.
Dana, this recipe was great and the whole family loved it! I finished up the leftovers today and it was still good. I can't get over how easy and tasty it is. I've been telling everyone I know about this find of a recipe. I didn't get to simmer it as long, maybe 40 minutes - it started getting too hot and scorching so I called it done at that time. Thanks for sharing.
These sloppy joes are AWESOME! I will never, ever use my old recipe again. The taste was perfect, just the right amount of tang, and the long cooking time really melded the flavors together. I will make this again and again, and I will always think of you, Dana, while I am doing so. Thanks!!!
I hadn't made sloppy joes for ages and couldn't even remember what I used to put in them. Your recipe sounded good and I am sure glad I tried it. I also added a Tbl of sugar. Served with your Balsamic Green Beans and Easy Baked Potato Wedges. Also made your No-Fuss Bar Cookies for dessert. Thank you for your recipes Dana. Great Meal !
This sloppy Joe recipe was a little different from some I have tried. A Great kind of different!!! This recipe is more tangy...and I really like that!!!! Thanks Dana!!!
