What a treat. It was a little too sweet eventhough I lessened the sugar from 2tbs to 2 tsp. And I added a little vinegar but I think it needed more. I should've used leaner meat, I ended up having to strain it at the end and strained it too much. Now I know!
@Mike9 that looks like the perfect recipe. Lee Drumond uses a little chili powder too while Tyler Florence adds a touch of vinegar.
@Planethoff I like the idea of adding a little celery too! I'll save the pickles for the side because I'm a huge lover of green pepper.
So I'm making sloppy joes tonight. I admit to you here and now that I have not eaten a sloppy joe since grade school, about 25yrs ago. I'm remembering a bright red messy sandwich, slightly sweet, slightly tangy. If anyone has a good recipe please share, I want this to be good.
Also, what does one serve with a sloppy joe? Tater tots?
