Years ago, my family operated a snack boat on Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks. These popular Sloppy Joes were a hit with hungry boaters. —Michele Delanty, Sunrise Beach, Missouri

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 7, 2014

this is a favorite in my family! I usually do whichever pepper we have too... Its fine without worcestershire sauce as well. Also I usually add a bit extra of the cayenne pepper...:)

MY REVIEW

From the previous reviews I was really looking forward to trying these. The recipe is really bland. I had to add more salt & it was still lacking any real flavor it just left your mouth a little warm but had no spicy "taste". Yuck.

MY REVIEW

These are just delicious. The only thing I changed was that I added a little catsup to the simmering meat. It was wonderful, and my husband says this should be on our table often. Left overs make for a good lunch the next day too.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2012

This recipe was pretty easy/fast to make and tasty -- seemed like it could have used more kick though, so I think I'll add in more chili powder next time.
