    These are a great twist to regular sloppy joes. The combination of A1 Steak Sauce and Thousand Island dressing are really yummy together.

      A very interesting twist to the old sloppy joe! It really needs some salt & pepper to perk it up some. I was amazed at how subtle the flavor was especially using steak sauce which can be quite strong in flavor. Nothing in this overpowers anything at all. My husband really enjoyed this sandwich, and said to make it again. I am hoping like a good chili or spaghetti sauce the flavors will deepen upon standing. This is incredibily easy and goes together quickly. Cut a few veggies up and throw some chips on the table and you have a meal before you know it!

      I reviewed this, but it didn't show up. I had to triple the recipe to feed the crowd here. But had to add extra dressing, A-1 sauce, salt & pepper. Putting it in the crock pot to simmer & keep hot for the guys gave the flavors a chance to develop. It turned out to be very well liked. A nice alternative to tomato based sloppy joes, which I will not eat. Thanks for sharing! Adopted for PAC Spring 2008.
