This tangy sandwich filling is so easy to prepare in the slow cooker, and it goes over well at gatherings large and small. I frequently take it to potlucks, and I'm always asked for my secret ingredient. —Marylou LaRue, Freeland, Michigan

"Super easy and delicious! I didn't have any reduced sodium soup on hand so I used regular tomato soup and received no complaints that the dish was too salty."

"While this is easy and healthy, I really love orignal sloppy joes. My kids immediatly knew this was not ground beef. I thought it was good, but will replace with the original."

"I didn't have any soup, so I used tomato juice instead and it came out watery, but it was still very good, and I did add a can of kidney beans and 1 tablespoon of vinegar for an added punch, with spicy mustard instead of regular mustard, it was delicious, I even used it in a salad."
