Super Sloppy Joes

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by tree luee dee

This comes from my "Taste of Home" magazine (Apr/May 99). I had always just opened a can of Manwich for dinner, but one day I dared to make "real" sloppy joes, and well, there's no going back now. Trust me, they're fabulous!

I also found this recipe in Taste of Home and have made it many times. Instead of crushed or diced tomatoes, I prefer using stewed. I add sugar or vinegar to taste. More sugar to cut the acidity in the tomatoes or adding more vinegar for a more tangy taste.
