This dish is not spicy hot, but there is a little zip in this sauce. You can substitute ground beef for the stew meat.

Followed recipe exactly. Fantastic even the kids came back for seconds. But you have to serve over rice.

Not bad.....not fantastic but not bad. the sauce is a little sweet and a little tangy....tried it over both rice and pasta. The rice is MUCH better.

Pretty good recipe. I altered some things based on the reviews. Used 3 Tbs brown sugar instead of 2 Tbs white used tomato sauce instead of ketchup kosher salt instead of table salt and served over wild and brown rice. I would also mix up the ingredients prior to adding it to the meat.

I have to admit I was sceptical about this recipe but decided it was quick. I am so glad I tried it! I made it with extra lean ground beef and doubled the sauce and served with whole wheat spiral pasta and salad. Everyone loved it and the best part was the time it took to prepare. Definitely a keeper.

Awesome sloppy joe recipe. Will never buy another can or mix again. I added a beef bouillon cube instead of salt brown sugar instead of white and threw all the ingrediants in the crockpot. I used cubed beef rather than ground beef. It made an amazing sandwich. Try it you won't be disappointed.

YUM! Both my son and husband loved this one. I did some substitutions. Instead of white vinegar I used rice vinegar. Didn't have fresh onion so I sprinkled about of 1 TBS of dry minced onion. Also per husbands trial tasting I added 2 TBS brown sugar (he likes it sweet). Also to thin it a touch without watering the flavor down I added about 1/3 cup ruby red grapefruit juice. I served this on egg noodles will try rice next time. This would make excellent sloppy joes! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

I used stew meat for this dish only because I could not get stir fry meat. My family liked this dish but I found it a little too sweet. I will fix again but will find a way to lesson the sweetness.

This was the first recipe I made and reviewed when I joined All Recipes in 2003! I made this again recently and as I did before - I made the sauce first and let it sit while I cooked the meat. I used 1 lb. of beef that was pre-cut for stir-fry and served on crusty rolls (not pasta - this is the key!!). It was even better now!! I love this recipe!!!!! Simple and delicious!!
