Reviews forSuper Sloppy Joes
"This was very good. It does make a lot so we did freeze half and thaw and eat about a month later. My only problem was that we found that our batch had a lot of spicy heat in it and we can't figure out where it came from as there is no pepper or hot pepper sauce or pepper flakes in the recipe. My wife is highly sensitive to capsaicin to the point where even the smallest amount will cause blistering in her mouth. She found this too uncomfortable to eat."
"I was expecting much more flavor with all the ingredients. I thought it was very blah. The only change I made was to add salt and it did not help."
"I followed the recipe exactly and was disappointed with the result. Surprisingly bland. This recipe as is, is not a keeper."
"I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to modify this recipe for an instant pot. My family loves the recipe and i love my new instant pot!Thank you"
"These are AMAZING!!! I've been making them for years, my family LOVES them!!"
"Taste was good, but mine needed more sauce. Only change I made was I pureed a tomato instead of using canned."
"Fantastic sloppy Joe recipe! It really hit the spot!"
"These sloppy Joes are soooo good! We will fix these again and again!!"
"These were very tasty. I had to omit the green pepper but still very good! Thank you for sharing!"
"I made this recipe the other night, and my husband and I both really liked it! There was just a tad too much brown sugar, so I'll cut back on that to 1 tbsp., but I definitely will make this again! This recipe made 6 sandwiches on whole wheat buns. It reminds me of sloppy Joes my mom used to make for us many, many years ago!"
