I really liked it and so did my kids, but my husband would prefer "regular" sloppy joe. I only used 1/2 cup pickle relish and about 1/3 cup brown sugar.

So easy to make and very sweet. I used a hot pepper relish, so it had a bit of a kick to it. The family loved it!

A little on the sweet side but tasty and easy. I used 1/4 cup barbeque sauce in place of part of the catsup and reduced the relish to 1/2 c. I will probably make this again.

I didn't add the brown sugar, I added 2 teaspoons mustard and cut back on the catsup.

It was different and pickle relish gave it a different flavor.

Only 1 lb. of hamburger to all the rest of the ingredients. Could this possibly be a typo error. 1 lb. would be floating in the sauce. please advice. Yes I would make if corrected.
