This is the recipe I remember from my childhood. I've been looking for a Sloppy Joe this good all my life! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've wanted this recipe for more than forty years. We didn't have a school cafeteria at Crosby and bagged or went home for lunch. About four times a year we had a Sloppy Joe Sale at Crosby to raise money for the school. We loved them. The smell emerging from the basement would have us all salivating. They were that good. The Crosby Sloppy Joe Sale recipe of the fifties wasn't so sweet as this one. This recipe is too sweet and was probably a recipe that changed over the years as the Sloppy Joes were always made by volunter mothers. Ingredients probably effect the taste as well. Still, it beats anything I have ever had out of a can. I found this recipe here recently and tried it. As I said good, but too sweet. I'm going to try it again with a generic catsup that I hope makes it less sweet. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was pretty, a good kids pleaser. It is very sweet, I'll cut back on the ketchup and tomato paste next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My 9 year old fixed this dish herself. Saves a trip to the store for a can of sloppy joe mix. The kids thought they were back in school for a moment. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this reciepe, the flavors are just great together and I make it frequently. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My boyfriend and I used this recipe to make sloppy joes for dinner tonight. The taste of the sauce was good until we added the listed amount brown sugar. I would suggest if you are planning to use this recipe to add the brown sugar in a teaspoon at a time to taste. The 2 tablespoons the recipe calls for was way too sweet for our tastes, and I'm from the south! Take in consideration that the ketchup is already somewhat sweet to begin with. The overpowering sweetness is the only reason I'm rating this recipe with 2 stars. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is really good. My husband ate three sandwiches. The only thing I might note is that there may be to much tomato paste.I'm going to cut the amount in half next time to see what I think.I also beleve that may cut down on the sweetness. item not reviewed by moderator and published
