I would have preferred less sugar and more mustard, but if you like it sweet then it’s perfect

Good recipe, I did tweak it though. Added 2 tablespoons of Gochujang and 1 teaspoon of garlic powder. Did not use sesame buns, I used brioche buns instead. Next time I make it, I'll use fresh garlic

It turned out just ok. I'm not crazy about using tomato sauce; I think I'll stick with using tomato paste. I would also use less onion and add some sweet peppers.

Ok. These were a little too sweet for my family’s taste. If I use this recipe again, I will cut way down on the brown sugar.

I adjusted it a little. I pretty much doubled the recipe. I added 1 small can of tomato paste instead of using tomato sauce. I sauteed about 4 cloves of minced garlic at the end of sauteing the onion. Also added garlic powder, cumin, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper seasoning, and Worcestershire sauce. Didn't measure the mustered just squirted it around the pan about 3 times around.

I can’t eat regular mustard so I substituted 1 dash of ground mustard with approximately 1 ounce of rice vinegar. We love it! Homemade sloppy Joe’s :) bc I can’t eat canned and really would prefer not to anyway.

Nice flavour, too sweet for me but solved it with more spices (Penzey's Beef Roast) and turned out great. Not quite my thing still.

I made a double portion, used a little less sugar (5 tbsps) and added a tsp of molasses for a deeper flavor. It turned out great.

Delicious! Added some garlic powder as well. Bf mentioned it wasn’t tangy enough for his taste and will try adding a little tomato paste in there to make it tangier next time.
