Reviews forSloppy Joes
"I made these for lunch and thought they were very tasty! I added about twice as much ketchup as the recipe called for otherwise made as directed. They had a very good sweet but tangy flavor."
"We just didn't think this recipe was as good as another one on this site!."
"My daughter made this for us. It was delicious. I would double or triple it so I couldput some in the freezer. Would save alot of time the next time I wanted it. My dh said we have to have this again."
"My mother recently passed away and took her Sloppy Joe (Cowboy Burgers, she called them) recipe with her. I have looked and looked to duplicate it, but to no avail until I found this recipe. It's not an exact match but SO DELICIOUS!! I definitely can live with this one. :)"
"I love homemade Sloppy Joes, not using the McCormick packets. Not a fan of the taste or flavor so I was willing to spend alittle time making a sloppy joe receipe even if it wasnt super quick to prep. I found this receipe and although it has a ton of steps to it, all the ingredients involved with this receipe is necessary to create the delicious taste! The only con is there are A LOT of ingredients that go in it which requires a lot of measuring and much more added time to make. I wouldn't call this a quick one to make but I can assure you if you can invest the time to make it, you won't be sorry! It has a ton of flavor and taste delicious! Also I never need to simmer it for 1 hour, thats a bit too long and I found it almost burned it to the bottom of the pan so 45min max is all you need to cook it!"
"Followed recipe exactly. It was the best sloppy joes I have eaten! My husband and son loved them. We will make these again."
"I have tried lots of Sloppy Joe recipes but I have found this the best."
"Great! Follow recipe exactly."
"The taste was WONDERFUL! However, I had to add a little extra brown sugar to temper down the acidity from the cider vinegar. I would recommend using half to three-quarters of the amount called for in the recipe."
