Pumpkin Joes

Rated as 3.67 out of 5 Stars

"Sloppy Joes, only with a pumpkin twist for fall. We live in Circleville, where the annual Pumpkin Show is huge, and my kids and I made this recipe up so we could have an easy sandwich available during the festivities. It can be made ahead and frozen or refrigerated."

  1. Brown the ground beef with the onion in a large skillet over medium heat, breaking up the meat as it cooks, until the beef is crumbly and starting to brown, about 10 minutes.
  2. Drain the fat from the beef, and stir in the pumpkin pie spice, thyme, rosemary, salt, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, tomato soup, celery soup, and pumpkin. Mix in the pumpkin, and stir until all ingredients are well combined.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the flavors have blended and the mixture is thickened, 45 minutes to 1 hour.

There is nothing wrong with this recipe. If you taste it at the end and it's bland, it's because you can't cut the hot sauce. Even if you hate spicy food you have to add a little to bring out th...

I hate to rate something so low but as is, the recipe is horrible. I scaled it down to 10 servings. I sauteed some red peppers and celery to add some crunch. But it was so thick after everything...

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this recipe! All you have to do is make it and let it sit in the fridge over night to let the flavors come together! Our town has a pumpkin festival every ...

I used turkey instead of beef, so this is probably my own fault, but here is my review after knowing that info.... As written, this recipe is very bland. I at least doubled all of the spices, a...

This is simply the most disgusting thing and does not make any logical sense and taste
