Reviews forTangy Barbecued Beef Sandwiches
"I was looking for a sloppy joe recipe that does not call for tomato soup. This is it! This will be my sloppy joe recipe from now on. Thanks for the recipe."
"I had 3 lbs of ground beef and was in a hurry. I found this simple recipe and it did not disappoint! I wasn't sure if I was going to like it so I only used 1/2 of the beef. With the 1st bite my mom said it was the best and has already requested that I make the remaining meat like this! I ended up only using 1 tbs each of the mustard & worchestire sauce, just a little more salt and brown sugar. This hungry family thanks you for the recipe and reviews. I'll be back for more! :)"
"My family and I loved the flavors in this sandwich! The only thing I did differently is I didn't use Worcestershire sauce because I was out. I was really disappointed because I love the flavor that adds to food. But without it it was still delicious! I will be making again."
"Very good and super easy to make. I'll be making this one again. (I served it on pretzel buns/rolls, which was also good!)"
"Simple, easy & delicious!!"
"I tried this and both my husband and I enjoyed it. I made a big batch for a party and served it from a crockpot; it was a hit!"
"Because I trust nearly every receipe from Taste of Home. I doubled this receipe and made it for the first time for a party. Taste of Home came through for me again! Everyone loved the sandwiches. It was like a summer time meal in the middle of winter."
"My family absolutely adores this recipe!"
