"My husband and I really enjoyed these. I made a few changes just to suit our likes: I only added 1/2 cup of ketchup and added about 1/4 cup of our favorite BBQ sauce. Only added 1 tablespoon of dark brown sugar, upped the worcestershire to 2 tablespoons, and added a can of diced tomatoes (drained). Its on the sweet and tangy side, for sure, but that's what we enjoyed most about it. It's definitely a keeper and I look forward to adding it to our winter meal rotation!"
"My new go-to recipe. The only change I made was cutting the brown sugar in half and adding a tablespoon of cider vinegar because I like it a little tangy. The kids loved it the way it is."
"LOVE this recipe! The first time I made it, the recipe turned out a little sweet for our taste. Second time, I used 3/4 Cup ketchup, and 1/4 Cup honey barbecue sauce. Everything else was as stated in the recipe. It was PERFECT! Just the right balance of sweet and tangy. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is because of my adjustment. Definitely a keeper, though! :-) Thank you!"
"Great recipe!! Easy, quick and great flavor. I used ground beef and the recipe as stated ... exept.. (and I always hate when people do that), but...I did make a few additions. Chopped up some green and red bell peppers and a jalepeno pepper and some onion. I omitted the onion powder but other than that was pretty much to the recipe. Made enough for 6 sandwiches. Was better tasting the next day!"
"Taste just like manwhich. A little sweeter."
