This was very tasty! The only thing i did different, was use tomato juice instead of ketchup. I had some left over tomato juice that needed to use up. Because ketchup is a lot sweeter and thicker, I just double the brown sugar(or sweeten to your taste), then thickened it with some corn starch. It worked out great!! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Delicious! A finicky 13 yr old biy picked this Sloppy Joe recipe for me likely because it had NO green peppers. I thought the amount of celery would taste/look weird but it didn't. It was a great addition the celery retains a crunch but was there mostly as texture as the flavor is either masked with the spice mix or gone because of cooking time. I made the celery into dice so that it would resemble the same chop of the onion figuring that is better looking than half moons. I also sauteed onion and celery and garlic first in a little olive oil (I like my onion wilted) and browned inexpensive frozen ground turley (comes in a frozen roll)on top of that. I did not drain since it was turkey and just omitted the water. YUM! and thank you! Read More

Awesome recipe. Recommend using jus a dash of cumin as it is a very strong spice and was a little overwhelming. Try using buffalo meat...you won't believe it. Read More

Good recipe though I like mine better (my recipe makes way too much for one family dinner and I can't really lessen it easily). For a different texture try using shredded beef instead. I had some Venison roast left-over from Sunday dinner shredded it and used that instead of ground meat. It saved on cook time too as I didn't have to thaw then brown any burger. Read More
