This is a recipe that I have had, and been making for quite a while,(15 years), this is my favorite Sloppy Joes, they are so good. This will make enough for about 16-18 sloppy joes.

Okay upfront I'm going to be honest and state that I tagged this but never really read all the way through the recipe instructions. So I made this exactly as written except for one little thing (hee hee) - I made it on the stove top and not in a slow cooker and we ate in after 30 minutes and not 4-6 hours! But I'm not sorry one bit - the flavors are outstanding even with a shortened amount of time. I just made it like normal sloppy joes of browning meat, draining fat, adding celery & onions and letting them cook for 15 and then added the remainder of the ingredients and cooked for an additional 15-20 minutes. My teenage son gobbled down 3 sandwiches and kept ymmm-ing while eating. My hubby and I really loved the flavors too - not overly spicy and has a tinge of sweetness but not too much. I'm just thrilled I tagged this in Zaar Stars tag game.
