A little too vinegary…..I added some mustard. I would make again starting with a little less ketchup and RWV. I also added some green pepper with the onion and beef.

It was very good! I did not use butter to cook the hamburger and I used half an onion. I’m gluten free so microwaved a couple of russet potatoes and then cubed and browned them in butter and some oil. Seasoned the potatoes with garlic salt and pepper and served dinner. Thanks! I’ll be making this again.

Best sloppy joes I've ever made. nice to spice it up a tad with hot sauce.

I was looking for a simple enough recipe for ingredients that I had on hand. I am sold! Lots of flavor with the sweet/sour taste that a sloppy joe should have. I was concerned that the amount of chili powder would make it too spicy for my husband. His tolerance for hot and spicy is limited, but it was perfect. This will be a regular for us when a quick and easy meal is needed. A butter toasted bun is always the bomb!

A great recipe. However, it was sweet for my taste even with less ketchup. I used garlic salt instead of regular salt and added some mustard. I will try it again

My family loved these sloppy joes. I substituted an 8oz can of tomato paste for all that ketchup and skipped the 1/4 cup of water. Turned out great! A wonderfully tangy sauce. Double thumbs up from even my pickiest eater!

I did not put in the chili powder. My family was not impressed with the Red Wine Vinegar taste. My daughter tasted it and refused to eat it. My one son commented on the strong Red Wine Vinegar taste but ate it. My oldest son who eats anything only ate half. I would possibly try again leaving out the Red Wine Vinegar. The portion said for 6. It made 2 open face buns for 5 people with not a lot of meat on each.
