The secret to a great 'Sloppy Joe' is a thick, rich, almost dry consistency, which allows it to be eaten two-fisted, sans fork.

Excellent flavor and consistency. You do have to let it simmer for a long time to get the right amount of liquid, but it's well worth it for the flavor. It was at least 1 hour of simmering to get it to reduce to the right amount of sauce. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Sounds Good Cindy. The only thing is the Dijon mustard-my husband bans it from our house. I don't know why. Or maybe I do-I always use a little bit for recipes, then end up throwing the rest out.

Lela, I looked at the video and he says that you can use yellow mustard instead of the Dijon.

Hey Cindy, thanks! I have a pot of aduki beans cooking today and I was pondering how to season them. Using this "seasoning" combo. Who doesn't like sloppy joes?? :)

Glad you all found this recipe. We really enjoyed it and I think you could make a big batch and freeze it into individual servings. Enjoy!
