Delicious Lean and Mean BBQ Sloppy Joes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by AndreaVT96

A quick and easy recipe for a busy night. I really enjoy this one. I have experimented using other BBQ sauces, but I personally haven't found one that works better than regular flavor Bullseye Brand barbecue sauce. Cooks up thick, rich and saucy. (If I don't have Bullseye, I don't make it.) I found this recipe in a little "bottles and boxes" (recipes using stuff you have in your house)type recipe guide I received free in the mail.

These were very easy and tasted good. They taste *almost* like sloppy joes, but not quite. I'll definitely put these in our regular rotation. Another nice thing about the recipe is that all the ingredients in the recipe are items I always have on hand, so there's no running to the store last minute to get some obscure, expensive ingredient. :)
