Been using this since you(Pannan) showed me how easy it was and that I didn't need a "canned" sauce. Right now I am creating a recipe album for Miss Alyssa and she loves this recipe! So, you will literally be a STAR in her book! Thanks for sharing again and again.

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!!

This makes a rich and delicious sauce, which I served on toasted whole wheat buns. I had 1-1/4 lbs. of lean ground turkey and used that in this recipe. During the 20 minutes of simmering time, I covered the pan the last 10 minutes as I felt the sauce was cooking down too much and I like my sloppy joes to be sloppy. Thanks for a keeper!

When you're in the mood for a sloppy joe, this one is very tasty, and uses ingredients you may already have. It sure beats the canned stuff! Thanks!

What can I say, wow is this soo good. It is one of those meals that you can just throw all together in not time and forget about it. I had ours on simmer for over an hour. I chose to make this recipe just as it is posted. Thanks for posting this recipe for all of us to try. 9 stars!

So easy to make! We thought they were a little too mustardy, but that could have been my fault as I didn't measure things too closely. But despite this, my family absolutely inhaled these, so I'd definitely say they are a winner! Made for Zaar World III.

WOW! Is this great or what?? I'll never buy this canned again, ever! I can't believe how easy this was.My hubby is super-picky, and if he even thinks I'm going to slip something in on him, he just plain won't eat it. He loved it! Wow, easy recipe to follow, awesome flavor, and I definately will be making this again. Thanks, Nan, for sharing.
