Wonderful! The overall flavor is varied and distinct because of the added spices. To make this more "sloppy" I use 3/4 cup of porter or heinekin and 3/4 cup of water. The brown sugar gives it a light sweet taste. The onions and red peppers give it excellent texture. If you like it hot, double the chili pepper or add some Aleppo pepper. I serve it over sliced Tillamook cheddar cheese on large toasted hamburger buns. I've made this numerous times and each time I love it more and more.

A nice recipe! I made some changes and used ground turkey and 3/4 cup of beer instead of water for the liquid. After simmering for 30 min or so you get a great taste!

This is a really good basic sloppy joe recipe. I made a couple of changes: I halved the chili powder, increased the salt to 1 tsp., and added about 1/4 c. ketchup (to give it more of a tomato-base flavor). With the chili powder and the pepper it had enough spice to satisfy without being too much! A good recipe! Thanks!
