Reviews for Slow-Cooked Sloppy Joes
"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"
"Very tasty and easy. Only changes were I used a red pepper and added 1 cup sliced celery."
"This is an awesome recipe!! delicious"
"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 is my absolute favorite sloopy joe recipe ever!! I love the 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."
"This is a very good and easy to make recipe. Thank you for sharing this Joeanne Steras and Taste of Home. :)"
"I just put everything into the slow cooker and let it cook on low while I was at work -- no need to dirty any more dishes! As a sloppy joe sauce, something was lacking... but this is an AMAZING coney sauce!!!"
"I made this with turkey and it was delicious!"
"CAN'T see the need for the 1st pan...typo !"
"Why brown in the skillet first? I can see the need for the 1st pan.The gr beef is in the crock pot for 4 hrs...just chop it up,mix all the ingredients and cover.Skim off the top before you eat...Ta Da! Less time spent cooking and less to clean...let's go toast our buns!"
"The whole family loved it!"
"I have the pickiest five year old in the entire world and she gobbled this up! It was delicious!"
