We really liked these Sloppy Joes. The sauce was nice and thick, and they were super easy to throw together. I think next time I will cut the amount of brown sugar back to 1/4 cup, they were just a little sweet for our tastes, but still worth a 5 star review. Thanks for posting, made for PAC Spring 2010.
