      I'm terribly sorry, but I found this recipe to be almost sickly sweet. Even though I doubled the vegetables, reduced the ketchup to 1 cup, added a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes along with about 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, and omitted the brown sugar, I still found it too sweet. On the positive side, I can see that kids would love it!

      BF said yummy baby!!!! I have always made a recipe that called for too many ingredients so thought I would try this 1. I used 1/2 tbsps balsamic vinegar (due to my taste preference) and also added 2 tsps of white sugar, for those of you that thought this may be a little too tart just add more sugar. This is awesome and will now be my new sloppy recipe. Congrats and thanks a bunch

      Wonderful recipe! I will never buy canned sauce again. Did not have any worcestershire sauce, but it was so good without. I would definitely make this again. Not too sweet, not too tangy. Served on buns with fries. Thanks!!
