    Andi of Longmeadow Farm's Note:

    The horse trailers were puling into the lot behind our church. It was a huge, long lot that was approximately 2 acres, and would house horses, their trailers, their owners and riders, and a large jumping course that would provide lots of fun and frolic for 2 days. My mother was in charge of the food supply, and early in the morning she made large, bubbling pots of "Sloppy Joes' a la All Saints!" I know we must of had at least 10 dozen rolls, and probably 25 lbs. of ground beef, large cans of tomato sauces, fresh tomatoes, and V8. Anyway you make these, they are 100% real from our horse show. The only thing missing is the peppermint stuck in the lemon.

      Andi, I made this for lunch today with a bit of hesitation because I have never been a fan of Sloppy Joes. I decided to make your recipe though, because I wanted something simple I could prepare and then throw in my crock pot for church potlucks etc... I must admit your recipe has changed my mind concerning Sloppy Joes. I did make a couple of small changes though. I realized after I had added the tomato sauce in the pan, that I was out of ketchup (hard to believe with 4 kids) so I subbed some rich and zesty B-B-Q sauce and omitted the brown sugar. Oh, I also added the chili powders and a pinch more garlic then the recipe calls for. Made and reviewed as a recipenap for the Aug. 2011 AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

      Oh So Good. DH and I loved this. I did omit the chopped tomato, but otherwise made exactly as stated and let simmer about 20 mins waiting for DH to come it. Thickened up very nicely. Served on regular toast with roasted potato/sweet potatoes. Very easy and filling meal.

      Excellent sloppy joes! Easy to make and definitely above the ordinary! I used a bit extra chili powder and served it on fresh homemade bread. YUMMY! Thanks for posting.
