"This is one of my kids' favorite recipes! I could make this five times in a row and they'd never get tired of it. It's easy to make and a real quick, hot meal for those busy nights. I will add cheese on top of the sandwiches or warm the rolls in the oven. I occasionally add mild banana peppers on top for my husband since he is a fan of spicy things."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is exactly the same recipe my mother passed down to me and I've been making for years. It is the best sloppy joe recipe around. Sometimes I'll add chopped celery and green chiles to change it around. I've even added some beans if we are in the mood. One thing we ALWAYS do before eating the sandwiches...cube up some Velveeta and bury about 5 chunks into the meat mixture before placing on the top bun...let them melt into ooey goodness before taking that first bite...YUMMY!!!!
I was super excited to make this but it came out too sweet and too strong in flavor. Had to force my self to eat most of it and threw the rest away.
I'm used to the old standby: manwich...
I was looking for some good recipes for my picky 6 year old and came across this..
Holy this is so much better than anything from a can.
I loved it and more importantly my "if its not Mac and cheese I don't want it!" 6 year old devoured it.
Way to go and thank you!
Made this a lot. Sometimes I use onion powder instead of cut up onions and the kids really do go crazy about it!
My sons, 18 and 22 and big and tall, loved this recipe. Yes, it is a little sweet and if that is a concern, simply reduce the amount of brown sugar. I am making this again for dinner tonight!
Awesome! The kids gobbled it up, and I liked it too. Much better than the canned stuff. I will make it again and again, such a quick and simple dinner. The only thing I'll probably adjust is the cider vinegar, it was just a hair too strong for me, really, just a tad. So next time I'll try making it with just a little less cider vinegar.
I made it exactly as written. It was very good and all four of us enjoyed it. Next time, I will probably use a little less vinegar. This will go in our meal rotation; definitely better than making sloppy joes with a store-bought seasoning package.
We made this last night in an effort to cut down on processed items. My whole family loves. Instead of buns, we use multi-grain Scoops. It lightens the meal and adds crunch!
