About this recipe: A delicious and quick version of the American favourite. This is easy to make in a large batch - you can double the recipe - and then freezer for later in small portions. Serve on a burger bun, bap or ciabatta roll.
Tasted just like the one recently purchased from our local Christmas market. Will most certainly be cooking this again and add an extra bit of chilli next time - 17 Dec 2014
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. - 31 Jul 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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! - 12 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
