Mother made these fresh-tasting sloppy joes many times when I was growing up. She passed the recipe on to me when I got married. My brother-in-law says they're the best sandwiches he's ever tasted. And he ought to know—his name is Joe! —Ellen Stringer, Bourbonnais, Illinois

This was wonderful! I followed all instructions. I served with Texas Toast and cooked carrots. Will make again! Thank you!

This is a keeper! Because it makes 10 servings I freeze the remaining portions in 1/2 cup servings. My husband knows they are there waiting in the freezer for when he needs a quick and yummy sandwich.

I thought this was very bland. I'll definitely need to add some additional seasoning the next time around.. all I could taste was the ketchup. I was a bit disappointed given the high rating of the recipe.

I thought this was a little bland so I added a tsp of Cajun seasoning and a little cayenne pepper. Then I thought it was great.
