This is a family recipe that lives up to its name. I love these Joes and haven't found any that taste the same.

Good recipe but I added a few things- becaue it was kind of boring otherwise. I cooked the hamburger in some garlic and onion powerdf. Then instead of worschestire sauce I used A1 steak sauce becuae I didn't have any worschestire. Also added a little bit more brown sugar. My family likes more saucy sloppy joes so I only used 1 pound of hamburger. Read More

Kid friendly recipe indeed or for those picky eaters that don't like onions and peppers! I've tried different ways of making it this one has good flavor to it although I add a bit of onion powder and garlic powder to the hamburger when browning. For a twist you can add a can of pinto beans or kidney beans as well. Read More

I was looking for my "first" homemade sloppy joe recipe. This is it - I add a bit of onion and garlic powder and green pepper but otherwise I follow the recipe to a tee and it's FANTASTIC. No more manwich in this house....Thanks! Read More

I had planned to only make half the recipe with one pound of ground beef for me and my husband. After I added half the soup concentrate I decided that wouldn't be enough sauce. So used the same amounts for the sauce for half the ground beef. Glad I did it that way - it was quite tasty. Will be making this one again... Read More
