    very good, a little sweet so next time i will probably use tomato sauce rather than ketchup. Family enjoyed it a lot. Thanks!

    I did not have the beef bouillon granules, so I omitted them. The recipe was GREAT! We enjoyed it, and I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing!

    I honestly cannot believe that I haven't rated this yet. I found this recipe when I was pregnant and craving sloppy joes. It was the the only recipes that I had all the ingredients for so it is the one I made. The baby who caused those cravings is now two and loves this recipe. A keeper for many years to come!

    This was very easy to make. My husband liked this because it didn't have a sweet bbq taste. Thanks JudaThann Bullwinkle

    Ok, I can't rate it since I haven't tried it yet, but I CAN say that I came THISCLOSE to eating my monitor when I saw the big picture! (Not good for my recent dental work) Will try soon...thanks for posting this!


The computer is a new adventure for me, however the love for food and cooking have been with me many years. I've been married almost 40 years to my loving hubsband, Paul. I have two grown daughters who also love to cook and they are Zaar memeber as well. They are Cookin_Kit and Kim D. <br> <br>Besides cooking, I also enjoy crafts, sewing, gardening, and reading. <br> <br>Although I don't cook as much as a I did when the girls were living at home, I do have a lot of great recipes to share.
