Reviews for Ozark Sloppy Joes
"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...:)"
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Best sloppy joes we have ever had! Deleting all my other recipes for sloppy joes from my files!"
