This was a hit! I will not purchase canned items, therefore, my family has not had Joe's for YEARS! Thanks, this was great! I added a little ketchup and a dash of worcestershire sauce. It took away the over kill on sweetness....but just sweet enough!

My husband and I both felt that this was not as flavorful as Sloppy Joe's we are accustomed to. Perhaps using a little less beef or a little more sauce would help to intensify the flavor. Also, the onion and celery should be sauteed with the ground beef in the grease that accumulates before it is drained off. The onion and celery do not become tender in 3 minutes of cooking it with the dry beef. Decent flavor, but would be better if flavor was more intense.

I converted this recipe for a crock pot. After I browned the beef, I just added everything (I left out the brown sugar) to the pot and let it go on low. Turned out great. Modifications: I added some hot sauce and I might have added some jalipeno pepper (if I had any) -- It needs a kick.
