The best sloppy Joes ever! I did add 1/4 c. chopped onion and 1/4 c. chopped green bell pepper and reduced the sugar. Love, love this!

This is a wonderful recipe.I usually use tomato sauce but this is so much better.I did use a small onion instead of the onion powder.

I wound up quadrupling this recipe because of the number of people eating, plus we wanted leftovers, and it turned out amazing! Even the two pickiest eaters I've ever come across had 2 & 3 sandwiches. The only 2 things I changed were I cut the salt down to 1/4 of what's listed (the original 1/2 tsp since I made so much), and added 1 tsp of ground pepper to cut down the sweetness a bit.Overall very easy to make and brought me back to the sloppy joes I had growing up.

Thanks for sharing this recipe. My old recipe calls for tomato soup, and since I had none, I looked here for a recipe that does not call for soup. This recipe worked out great. I did cut down on the brown sugar slightly. Also, I added diced onion to the meat when I browned it and omitted the onion powder. Thanks for the good recipe.

We were looking forward to eating this but were sadly disappointed. I'm glad that I read the reviews and cut the sugar in half. The vinegar in the ketchup overwhelmed the dish. If you love ketchup, you'll enjoy this recipe.

This was good but just not exactly what I was looking for. We did enjoy it and made as written.

Very tasty and easy to make. The sweetness and spice was just right.

This recipe reminds me of my mom's sloppy joes. It has the right amount of tang. I did add chili powder to it because I cant image sloppy joes without chili powder and also used minced garlic instead of powder.
