Reviews for Tangy Barbecue Beef Sandwiches
"This was real good, simple, reheated great. To stretch the leftovers even more, I mixed in some Bush's beans (Southwest Pit Barbecue flavor). This would be great over pasta, or wrapped in a tortilla!"
"Absolutely fabulous. Only tweak was I used 1/2 cup of ketchup instead of 1/4 cup."
"loved the tangy/sweet taste!"
"This is a good recipe. Quick like it says and easy! It's really just Sloppy Joe's though. I was hoping for a different flavor, but my family still enjoyed it and I'll probably make it again."
"Loved it! Only thing I did differently was use green pepper instead of celery. Will definitely be making this again!"
