  1. Very good. Easy to make.
  2. I tried this recipe tonight and made a few substitutions. I used 2lbs of ground beef and also chopped up 1 1/2 green peppers. I also used tomato sauce instead of the soup and then I also used the Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce. It was deeeelicious!! I normally do not eat sloppy joes but I loved this!! My daughter who doesn't like bbq sauce even gobbled this up!! Thanks for the tasty and super easy recipe!!
  3. Yummy! I subbed 96% lean ground beef, 8-10 ounces of Kraft light barbecue sauce, and about 1/4 cup sugar free pancake syrup to add sweetness instead of brown sugar. We all gobbled it up! DH was the lucky one to get the leftovers for todays lunch! Thanks so much for an easy and delicious way to make sloppy joes!
  4. This made a real tasty lunch for us today. I did cook my onion in with the ground beef just to decrease the cooking time since I was late on getting lunch going. I'm sure it works out fine either way. I couldnt find the Open Pit BBQ sauce here either although I have bought it in the past, so I just used a thick n spicy Kraft BBQ that I had in the pantry. I think this might make a good topping for hot dogs (coneys), so we're going to try that later tonite with our dawgs. Thanks for sharing a "souper" easy recipe that is yummy to boot!
  5. Delicious! We both loved these! Unfortunately I couldn't find Open Bit BBQ sauce, so used Sweet Baby Rays instead. I let it sit on simmer for a couple hours and the house smelled so good and it got nice and thick! I easily halved the batch for just two of us and can't wait to try a leftover one tomorrow! Thanks for sharing this simple, but yummy recipe! :)
