This didn't wow us although most of the kids ate it exclaiming "it taste like ketchup!" which I guess is good for them, but as far as flavour goes for adults we were looking for more depth I guess. It was very simple to make though, and our 8 year old and 2 year old liked it but the 10 year old passed as well. You win some and loose some I guess. Thanks anyway Budgiegirl!
Great recipe. We really enjoyed it. I am not a huge sloppy joe fan, but my husband really likes it so I made for him. I found that I enjoyed this more than the recipe my mother used to make as it was a little sweeter. All I had was Coke Zero, but I doubt that makes much of a difference. I also added a little garlic just for personal preference. Thanks to Outtatime for the suggestion on the corn starch. It worked perfectly. I froze the recipe and then when I wanted to reheat and serve I just dumped in the frying pan and reheated.
These rocked! I'm not a fan of sloppy joes, but for some reason I've been craving them and this is the recipe I chose. I also went the cornstarch route, as I have no idea what arrow root is. Onions aren't permitted in our house, so I used onion powder. They were a little runny, so we made ours 'open faced' and used forks, but I'm pretty sure that didn't change the taste :) Thank you for this yummy recipe!!
Amazing! I was craving sloppy joes, & this was just perfect-- a wonderful balance of sweet & tangy! I used Morningstar Farms veggie crumbles instead of the beef, which took it down to only 2 Weight Watcher points. I also used 2 tsp. of cornstarch instead of the arrowroot--not at all watery that way, and it didn't add anything to the 2 points. I served it on 45-calorie bread. What a delicious, healthy recipe!!

I have always enjoyed cooking and looking for recipes. I have to admit though, until I joined Weight Watchers four years ago I never did much cooking. Since then it has became vital to do my own cooking and I find I am really good at it. I really enjoy trying new ingredients like Quinoa, Millet, Porktenderloin, hoisin sauce, beans, Textured Vegetable Protein among many other new ingredients. My family has started thinking I am a little weird with all the unusual ingredients I have in my pantry. My passions are my 3 nephews, Matthew, Lucas and Charles and my 8 parrots, Guy, Pete, Toby, Daisy, Zeke, Ernie, Max and Lu. They keep me positive when life takes a nose dive.
