I prefer this by far over the name brand canned sloppy joe sauce I grew up with! It's quick and easy, using ingredients I always keep on hand. But best of all it can be made very LOW SODIUM by using no-salt-added ketchup and if you are careful of which brand of mustard and Worcestershire you use. Definitely a keeper for my husband who is on a sodium restricted diet. Hearty and full of flavor!

This is a very easy and delicious recipe. I made it with ground chicken, because I don't eat red meat anymore. I used it as a topping on smoked sausages, and made it like a Coney. It was fabulous, and my husband said that it was a keeper. I will be making this recipe often.

The first time I made this recipe, I didn't like the specific ketchup-mustard taste that reminds me of eating a fast food hamburger, but I like the simplicity of this recipe and that it uses ketchup instead of tomato soup. I tried it again tonight with a few substitutions. I always use ground turkey instead of beef. I omitted the water because I didn't want it to be too runny (makes it hard for the little kids to eat). I only put in 1tbs of brown sugar after reading many reviews on here that suggested cutting it. I added an extra dash of Worcestershire sauce, and I used stone ground mustard instead of plain yellow mustard. This version is more tangy, but I can still taste the sweetness of the brown sugar. It also stays together nicely on a bun, so it's a little less "sloppy." I served on whole wheat buns with avocado and hot sauce (for the adults, of course). I paired with homemade mac and cheese and steamed broccoli for some real comfort food!

This recipe was fast and easy. I put a little less ketchup and used ground chicken instead of beef. Tasted good, in the future I'd maybe add some diced onions and garlic.

I've been sick a while, and had no energy for chopping anything like I usually do. I made it as is... Oh I did add a tiny bit of beefy onion mix. It is perfect. Just perfect! I can't wait till I feel better, and can chop all manner of yummy things to put in it!

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.
