This is a great recipe! The family loved it! It's quick and easy. The only things I changed was due to it being too tangy I added 1/4 cup white granulated sugar, I omitted the salt and worcestershire sauce and added 1 tablespoon minced garlic instead. I let it simmer for about 45 mins and it turned out great! Thanks for a great recipe...I will be making this again!
My family found this recipe very sweet...we were expecting more. The ketchup is a little overwhelming.
Good recipe. A lot of ketchup, but turns out very good. To make it a little spicier, I added a teaspoon of cayenne powder. I let it simmer for one hour and made it one day before. The meat became more 'sticky' after half an hour simmer.
These were very tasty, very saucy, almost too saucey though... I had to simmer this 45 min to get it reduced/thickened. Plus it needed the time for the flavor to develop. Tangy flavor, zesty with some zing but not too spicy, or sweet or tomatoey, a nice blend of all. I scaled this back to 1 lb of beef. I used 2 Tbl dried minced onion and 2 heaping Tbl. of diced pimento pepper in the jar, Head Country bbq sauce, which didn't have hickory so I put in a couple of drops of mesquite liquid smoke (the only kind I had on hand). I used about a half tsp of sea salt, 1/4 tsp celery salt, and 5 or 6 grinds of black pepper and a tsp of paprika to go with the pimento since I didn't use fresh sweet red pepper. I buttered the buns and grilled them til they were toasty and golden, topped with sloppy joe filling and a slice of american cheese, this made a nice filling lunch and I had plenty of leftovers for another meal. ***These were even better after I reheated the leftovers. I almost gave this a 5 based on what I reheated, but the original recipe only says to cook these a few minutes and they certainly would not really compare with my final product. Fabulous recipe, I'll certainly use this again. Thanks so much for posting this one!
Awesome recipe! Thanks again. I've made it several times.
THIS RECIPE WAS SOOOO GOOD.FAMILY WAS OVER TO WATCH FOOTBALL, AND I MADE THE DALLAS-STYLE SLOPPY JOES, AND GOT RAVE REVIEWS. THEY THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST.
Yummy flavors! I used 1 tbsp of tomato paste & 1 sm can of tomato sauce with 3 tbsp of ketchup. Then used 1 tbsp of each of the remaining ingredients except BBQ sauce which I used 1.5 tbsps. I also used a green pepper in place of the red. Definitely will make again!!
I dont make sloppy joes that often, and decided to make some!! I found this recipe and absolutely loved it along with my family. It was really sweet and tangy!! I will make it again!! Thanks
