"This is a very delicious recipe.There are a couple of things I did different..I browned the beef, onion, & green pepper, drained the grease, added the remaining ingredients & simmered it on the stove top for an hour & I used only 1 TBS of brown sugar..My husband & son loved it!"

"This was a very good recipe for our pot-luck.

The first pan was used to caramelize the beef, adding flavor."

"This was pretty good, especially for someone who got braces on less than a week before. It was tasty & I used whole grain sandwich thins and made it open-faced and easier to eat. I used dry onion since I don't like onion much. It's pretty high in sodium though & my dad thought pretty sweet. (First ingredient in Walmart store brand sloppy joe sauce is sugar.) I may make a few adjustments, but overall it was a very filling & easy meal for a working person."

"I just put everything into the slow cooker and let it cook on low while I was at work -- no need to dirty any more dishes! As a sloppy joe sauce, something was lacking... but this is an AMAZING coney sauce!!!"
