so much better than manwich !!!
I made the recipe the way it was written except I did not add any additional salt (husbanad has high blood pressure). It was okay for a sloppy joes recipe, but I have another one that I like better. That's why I wouldn't make it again.
Made it for dinner tonight. Was easy and absolutely delicious!
perfect just the way it is. My husband isn't that crazy about sloppy joes, but he loved these!
This was very salty. Did I do something wrong? Next time I will only put 1/2 tsp of salt. I also would add just a bit more surgar, 1 clove minced garlic, and will use red wine vinegar instead of white. I did add about 1 1/4 c sweet baby ray's as well. I will make again, as I like using the ketchup base (I always have ketchup) but feel like I have altered the recipe so much I feel guilty saying it's the same recipe. I think cutting the salt will go a LONG way to make it better.
