Sloppy Joes Sandwiches
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
Cloyingly sweet, this recipe will only appeal to those under 10 years old. This is a warning: look elsewhere for your Sloppy Joes recipe.
Out of fear of being that guy, I'd like to mention that I adjusted this recipe ever so slightly and it still turned out fantastic. I substituted beef broth for the water and used 90/10 ground beef and didn't drain it. I also followed the note in the tips to add a small amount of corn starch. I feel like it could use a little more seasoning but I'm not sure what it's missing. I'd likely use something like Red Pepper Flakes if I weren't also cooking this for my 5 year old daughter. But solid recipe!
This was really good. I feared having enough ketchup so I did half ketchup and half bbq sauce. Everyone enjoyed it.

This looks just as easy as using canned sloppy joe sauce, but, I don't have to go to the store- I have all of the ingredients necessary in my pantry!! Thank you for simplifying tonight's dinner!!!
Very good! Also used tomato sauce instead of ketchup.
Following other comments, I eschewed ketchup and substituted an 8oz can of no-salt added tomato sauce instead. I added a pinch more salt than the recipe called for and it all was very good. A sweetness but not too sweet. Even letting it cook longer seemed to leave it saucy so perhaps next time I will reduce the water.
I hadn't made sloppy joes in years, so I went looking for a recipe. This looked right, and yes it was!
Pretty good, I saute chopped onions in place of the onion powder
My friend loved these sloppy Joes. He said "better than the canned stuff". It is a bit too sweet for my taste. I believe I'll try it with tomato sauce instead of ketchup to cut that sweet taste next time.
