Since I'm cooking for only two, I cut the recipe down to 1 lb. of ground beef. I did, however, have to increase the sauce ingredients; used about 2/3 cup catsup and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. In addition to the celery and onions, I also added about 1/4 cup of green peppers. This so much better than those mixes and canned 'stuff'! The flavors is a 5 star, just think the amounts need adjusting a little! Thanks for sharing. Tagged for the Potluck Game!

This is a meaty sloppy joe, not much sauce, but great BBQ-style flavor. We didn't have any celery, but one of us doesn't usually like it anyway. Otherwise, made as instructed; it went together quickly and came out terrific. Great treat to take out to the patio on a spring evening! Thanks! Made for OZ/NZ swap, April 09.

TY Doug for a great sloppy joe recipe that was really easy to throw together. I always add brown sugar to my bbq recipes as the family really likes the added sweetness. I did omit the celery and onion per families request. Thanks~ Made for 123Hits.

Made for Went to the Market game. We enjoyed these sloppy joes with a few adjustments for next time.I would only use half the brown sugar, we found it a bit too sweet for our taste.Other than that, simple, quick and quite nice. :)

Made as written for the FYC Tag Game - DH & I both love Sloppy Joes, I love using my crock pot & I wanted something easy for our dinner so we could nap before watching the Super Bowl on-line. There's only 2 of us, but I didn't let that stop me. I made the full amount & put 2/3 of it in 2 freezer containers for later use. We were greedy & full after dinner last night & look forward to making it happen again tonight. These Joes were yummy, Doug. Thx for sharing the recipe w/us.

I had all the ingredients except the mustard to do this recipe. I didnt change a thing except didnt use the mustard. Also I cooked on stove top. Only simmered for 20 minutes after the rest of the ingredients were added. This was excellent.

OMG These sloppy joes were by far the best I have ever had in my life. I followed the ingredients to a "T" but I browned my onions and garlic in a skillet, then added the hamburger meat, drained the grease, and added the mixed ingredients into the pan and let it simmer for 5 minutes. I made my sandwiches with flat bread and baby swiss cheese, it was delicious! I will never buy store bought again!

This was so good. The only change I made was I added half a cup of chopped bell peppers. I will be making this again for family get togethers. Thanks

Really great version of sloppy joes! I used ground turkey instead of beef, otherwise made as directed. Served some for dinner and packaged the rest in single-serving pouches to put in the freezer for quick lunches/dinners later. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
