I loved them! I did add 1 tablespoon of sugar to help take the bite out of the viniger. I didn't cook it the full hour either, it was getting too dry, even when I turned it down to simmer. I am definately making this again.
This was not what I was looking for. I'm sure it is good for what it is, but apparently, I am a Manwhich girl.
I never use a recipe for sloppy joes, but just for fun I thought I'd see what's out there. This one is very similar to what my mom always made (and how I do it too). The only changes I made were using onion powder because I didn't feel like chopping onions, and adding some black pepper and paprika. I didn't let it cook as long as it called for because I didn't have that much time, I never cook joes that long anyway, and no matter how low I had the burner, it just seemed to cook to fast (I added a bit of water a couple times to keep it from getting too dry). But, the flavor was terrific and it was super easy to throw together. I'll definitely make this one again!
These were great but somehow were not our favorite recipe of sloppy joes. I can't tell what is missing for us. Thanks Dana :) Made for Cookbook tag game
I had a craving for a good Sloppy Joe and this was super. I wasn't sure about the vinegar, but made as directed. Nice tangy, smoky flavor. Loved it. Thanks for the post.
Love this recipe. Used tomato sauce instead of catsup and added about a tsp of brown sugar to add the sweetness...Perfect (i'm sure it is with catsup too). Not too sweet and has a little tang. Kids loved it too! Thanks Dana!
These sloppy joes were delicious! My husband had recently asked me to make sloppy joes because I hadnâ€™t made them in a long time. I usually just buy Manwich sauce, but I thought Iâ€™d look for a recipe. I came across yours and one other one I thought I might try. I decided to try your recipe because it seemed simpler yet it had lots of good reviews. I made just a couple of adjustments. I cooked Â½ of a green bell pepper (chopped) along with the onions and ground beef and I used less salt. At first it looked like too many onions and peppers, but once everything cooked down it was perfect. Once I added the sauce, I simmered everything for about 30 minutes. The sauce was thick and seasoned just right. I served them on toasted buns with steak fries and corn on the cob. My husband said Iâ€™d have to make this a regular dish.
New favorite sloppy joes.. thanks ! I did add some hot sauce to zip it up a notch - but we like hot stuff - husband loved it as did the 3 year old ;-)
My hubby and I really enjoyed these... I stuffed myself silly! So easy and I had everything I needed without a grocery store visit. Used All Purpose Ground Meat Mix that I had in the freezer and had dinner ready in no time. **Update: I made this again tonight but ran out of ketchup so I subbed in a half cup of barbeque sauce. Also added a little bit of hot chili sauce which gave it a subtle building heat. Hubby says I need to keep making it the way I did tonight and I agree. Thanks again for another yummy and easy dinner (..that is so versatile too)
This was good as written but we made some adjustments to make it even better for us. I followed the recipe as written but then we added some red hot, pepper and maple syrup and we thought it was even better. I had two pounds of meat but I tripled the other ingredients as we like our sloppy joes saucy. I cooked this on the stove for about a half an hour and then put it in my crockpot as we took it for dinner at the race track. The longer it cooks the better it tastes.
