Simple and Good Sloppy Joes

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CarrolJ

I made these February 25, 2010 and they were the best I've made in a long time. I ate two and would have eaten more if I would have had room.

My son liked these sloppy joes a lot. But DH found them too sweet. I didn't use msg. I used splenda instead of sugar. I didn't like the way the beef was cooked (with water). Because that way I couldn't drain the grease from the meat. But overall the taste was great for me and my son. My son even asked me to do them again. Thanks Carrol :) Made for PAC Spring 2013
