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.

These were good - the sauce was flavorful. I was also told it would make a good BBQ wing sauce. They weren't very "sloppy." I really did not like the lean ground beef because it turned out chewy. Also, I would never try to serve six people with one pound of meat. This is four servings. Perhaps I would make this again using ground chuck, proportioning 1.5 times the sauce ingredients to 1 lb., to serve 4.

I made these b/c DH2B informed me that Sloppy Joes were one of his favorite dishes. Everyone loved them. Our 5 year old purchased lunch the next day because Sloppy Joes were on the menu and he said they were okay but that the ones i made were WAY better :) I added garlic powder to the recipe and didn't bother adding the salt. The recipe says it makes 6 servings, but I only got 4 Sloppy Joes out of the pound of beef... maybe our buns were bigger..... Thanks puppitypup

I used lean ground turkey cause it was on sale.... We loved this. Not too sweet and not too sloppy, just right for our tastes. Thanks for posting.

I've been making the same sloppy joes for as long as I can remember, a concoction that my family and I love. I was looking for something a little different that would incorporate items that I ALWAYS have in my pantry, and this one did not disappoint me! I doubled all ingredients except the salt, and I added a couple extra dashes of worcestershire sauce, otherwise made the recipe as written. I will definitely add this to my cookbook, especially since it's an actual recipe that other members of the household can follow when the need arises as opposed to my own which is in my head and based on if it "looks" right! Thanks!

Yumm-o! My kids and I really enjoyed these. Easy to make and less gloppy than Manwich (which I hate anyway, LOL).
