Throw away the canned version this one is just as good, actually better I think. I prefer the real thing vs. Diet Dr. Pepper, but either one would work, I think. My Sister-In-Law contributed this to our family cookbook.

We liked this and will probably make again. After reading the other reviews, I add a bit of mustard and chili powder to taste.

This was pretty good. It makes a sweet type of sloppy joe, so add some hot sauce if you like a little kick. We enjoyed it and I plan to make it again.

I made this tonight for dinner and it was pretty good. Something different from my usual Man'wich sloppy joes. It did seem like it was missing something so next time I may use more hot pepper sauce or perhaps some chili pepper or something to kick it up a bit. Thanks for posting!
