MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 5, 2013

I make these a lot and really love them. My husband is not a fan of sloppy joes but he does like these, which is funny because he hates cabbage. Ok , he does not know that's one of the ingredents.

I love this recipe, but my husband hates any kind of sloppy Joe, so I can only make it when he's not home. I cut the amount of lemon juice and vinegar in half. Even my kids like these, and it's so healthy!

These were fantastic! I almost passed this recipe up because of the cabbage, but I'm glad I didn't. These are the best Sloppy Joes I've had... they are now replacing my longtime favorite Sloppy Joe recipe, everyone in my family has rated this one number 1! Best of all, my two toddlers ate these up, not even realizing there was cabbage, celery or green peppers in them. This one's a keeper! We loved the tanginess, it wasn't overboard... but if it seems too much, it's very simple to just decrease the amount of lemon juice or ketchup and then add more if needed. Thanks for a great recipe!

Great way to get veges in the kids without them knowing. I also used ground trukey instead of beef. I often substitute turkey or ground pork or a combination, again I don't tell my family. Turkey of course is more costly but overall better for you.

We make it with veggie crumbles for a healthier meal, yet it still tastes great.
