I know, I know, everyone has a Sloppy Joe recipe. But nobody else's matched ours, so I've got it posted for posterity. Originally from Esther Shank's Mennonite Country-Style Recipes cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 15 - 30 minutes.
  3. Serve on hamburger buns.

This was actually pretty good, we rarely eat sloppy joes (not too fond of them) but this has a subtle sweet/tangy taste and not overly "sloppy". I could see this going into occasional rotation.
