Sloppy Joes Sandwiches
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Entirely too sweet! If you make start with a teaspoon of the brown sugar. Taste and add as you go if you feel you need more sugar.
we just love this recipe. The first time I made this, I had no leftovers. Thanks to all the home cooks who share their recipes.
It’s yummy but just a little too sweet. I think I will try with tomato sauce instead of ketchup next time (ketchup is sweet to begin with....)
Cloyingly sweet, this recipe will only appeal to those under 10 years old. This is a warning: look elsewhere for your Sloppy Joes recipe.
Out of fear of being that guy, I'd like to mention that I adjusted this recipe ever so slightly and it still turned out fantastic. I substituted beef broth for the water and used 90/10 ground beef and didn't drain it. I also followed the note in the tips to add a small amount of corn starch. I feel like it could use a little more seasoning but I'm not sure what it's missing. I'd likely use something like Red Pepper Flakes if I weren't also cooking this for my 5 year old daughter. But solid recipe!
This was really good. I feared having enough ketchup so I did half ketchup and half bbq sauce. Everyone enjoyed it.

This looks just as easy as using canned sloppy joe sauce, but, I don't have to go to the store- I have all of the ingredients necessary in my pantry!! Thank you for simplifying tonight's dinner!!!
Very good! Also used tomato sauce instead of ketchup.
Following other comments, I eschewed ketchup and substituted an 8oz can of no-salt added tomato sauce instead. I added a pinch more salt than the recipe called for and it all was very good. A sweetness but not too sweet. Even letting it cook longer seemed to leave it saucy so perhaps next time I will reduce the water.
