Mimi's "barbecue" (Sloppy Joes)

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Kettch23

This is my grandmothers recipe and where we're from we call it barbecue, but most other people know them as sloppy joes. This are way better than your run of the mill canned stuff.

I really had high hopes for this recipe.My dh and I were very disappointd in the flavor. This recipe is for someone that likes tangy and sweet.I don't know why I didn't see that before making the recipe. We didn't care for it,but that doesn't mean noone else will. I HATE :0( giving a low rating,but needed to give a honest one.
