Made this last night to eat tonight. I wanted the flavors to meld overnight. Tasted great when I tested it. Pretty much followed the recipe except I added celery, carrots and shallots to the onions and cooked until soft. Also used about half the amount of catsup to cut down on the sweetness and freshly grated some nutmeg into the mix for some savory. Turned out really delicious and the right amount of sweetness for me.

This is the first time I've ever made homemade sauce for sloppy joes. I will never buy a sauce for packet again. I might try to pressure can this for an easy dinner. I served this over hashbrown patties. With corn on the cob from our garden. Awesome dinner, thanks so much for posting!

Wow! These were great! I'm not a big fan of sloppy joes. I'm on a diet and figured I could make these for the kids and it wouldn't tempt me. I wanted to try just a small taste to see if they were good or not. Needless to say, I couldn't stop there. I had to have one. They have a little bit of kick and they were perfect! This will be saved in my favorites and made many times to come!

Just made this for dinner. My grand daughter loves sloppy joes. I used very lean ground turkey and it was awesome. I will keep this and continue to make these for my grandchildren and myself too. By-the-way, my grand daughter loved it.

Awesome. Normally, I'm not a fan of the brown sugar/vinegar/ketchup/mustard idea with meat, but for whatever reason I keep making these!!! I added a couple of glugs of Diana's Original barbecue sauce and subsituted some of the tomato sauce with pizza sauce. Served on a bun with a slice of processed cheese ~ will add a couple thin rings of raw green pepper next time, I think. YUMM.

Good and easy to whip up in a flash from pantry ingredients. Thoroughly drained the fat, and ended up doubling the tomato sauce so there was enough liquid to simmer. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I made this recipe tonight in preparation for a family gathering for Father's Day. I was floored at how quick and easy it was to make these. Most of all I was blown away by the flavor... DELICIOUS!!! I will definitely be making these again.
