    This was one of the best sloppy joe recipes I've ever tried. It has a great zesty flavor. It is definately a keeper.  -  30 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have been making Jeff's Joes for a few years and love them! I am the kind of cook who tries a new recipe every time, but not for sloppy joes. I love the extra kick from the chili sauce and my kids gobble the down.  -  25 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Tangy. Different. My son and DH loved these. I didn't have Italian sausage so I used another half lb. of ground chuck. I let this simmer for about forty minutes. My guys loved this, I didn't as much. They were okay, just not my personal taste. I don't care much for chili sauce flavor in general. Thanks Jeff, my men really liked this a lot. I'd eat it again, but I like others a lot better.  -  02 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
