Fast and easy recipe--followed the recipe and also added sliced celery, fresh minced garllic and a little water. Will be saving this one!

It has a very good flavor. I used McCormick's sloppy joe mix. I think it needs some liquid added - water or red wine. Otherwise it is great. I'd probably add celery too next time.

This was a great and easy recipe for a crowd. I did use red pepper instead of green. Otherwise, I made it as written

This is a very delicious recipe.There are a couple of things I did different..I browned the beef, onion, & green pepper, drained the grease, added the remaining ingredients & simmered it on the stove top for an hour & I used only 1 TBS of brown sugar..My husband & son loved it!

This was a very good recipe for our pot-luck.The first pan was used to caramelize the beef, adding flavor.

This was pretty good, especially for someone who got braces on less than a week before. It was tasty & I used whole grain sandwich thins and made it open-faced and easier to eat. I used dry onion since I don't like onion much. It's pretty high in sodium though & my dad thought pretty sweet. (First ingredient in Walmart store brand sloppy joe sauce is sugar.) I may make a few adjustments, but overall it was a very filling & easy meal for a working person.
