    Kids loved it! Omitted the green pepper, doubled onion. A little on the sweet side for me. Probably packed the sugar too much. Definitely make again.

    My wife, who was a little hesitant because it wasn't Manwich, was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't too saucy. Simple and good.

    Amazing! I did add the tomato paste and a few drops of worchestire sauce. We don’t like it too sweet. The red pepper flakes added just enough spice. And I kept the seeds from the green peppers in there which gave it plenty of flavor! Excellent recipe, will make again

    one of the best sloppy joe recipes I've ever had. I use the pound of ground round in a pound of ground turkey it was really really good

    Too sweet and I used French’s ketchup. I would recommend omitting the brown sugar and adding in what you think you need.

    It turned out great, and everyone loved it. I added more tomato sauce and used one teaspoon of brown sugar instead of two. I like more of a zesty taste for my Joe’s. Will definitely make again!

    Best sloppy Joe's I have ever made, my 5 year old even raved about how she couldn't stop eating it, and this was huge as she wouldn't even touch my last recipe. Followed as instructed, although I did switch out the beef for ground turkey as that is how I always cook, and toasting the buns with butter is a must! Served with air fried french fries and green beans.

    I didn't use oil, butter, green pepper, or ketchup. Instead, I used yellow and red peppers, bbq sauce, and a small can of tomato paste with 1/2 cup of water. It tasted delicious. Family enjoyed it as well.

    Sloppy Joes were a hit! Especially the toasted buns! Easy and quick to make I added 2 extra teaspoons of brown sugar b/c we like it a bit sweeter, and a dash - or 3 of Worcestershire - for added flavor. The family rated it 4+ out of 5 so this will be added to the dinner recipe rotation.
