Great change up recipe! I normally use chuck roast for barbecue beef, but I loved switching up the recipe by using ground beef. For the vinegar, I used apple cider vinegar. For the sugar, I used brown sugar.

Excellent! Made 2 little changes, brown sugar instead of regular and added a splash of worcestershire sauce for a bit of zing. Simple to make and ingredients on hand. My new favorite recipe for sloppy joes!

I omitted the green peppers and used chopped celery instead. I also wanted to add a little zip so I sprinkled a dash of red pepper flakes into the mix before simmering. My husband had two helpings!!
