I also always use 90% lean beef. I omit green pepper. I add a dash of vinegar--white or apple cider. I put it in the pressure cooker for 8 mins sometimes to cook itself, so simple. Made it a day ahead for a lunch I was having the next day--reheat and eat. I put out a few fixin's of grated cheddar, white onion, to put on top. Yummy.

PUT THE RECIPE UNDER THE VIDEO. I WENT TO FOODWISHES.COM AND SEARCHED FOR THE CLASSIC SLOPPY JOES RECIPE AND IT COULDN'T EVEN FIND IT. IT'S USELESS TO SHOW THE VIDEO FROM FOODWISHES.COM IF YOU CAN'T FIND THE RECIPE. THIS IS NOT GOOD PR WORK FOR ALLRECIPES.COM

The video is NO GOOD when the speaker doesn't give the ingredient amounts. I cook by recipe, not by a chef's voice and pictures. I am really disappointed in allrecipes.com for not following up to make sure we can get the recipe.
