Rated 5 out of 5 by momofboys24 from New family favorite! My kids wrinkled noses and complained when I told them sloppy joe meat was for supper - until they tried it and I got enthusiastic thumbs up! I used 1 pound ground turkey and 1 pound lean ground beef and also added some chopped green pepper when I browned the meat. Instead of buns - we just ate it with homemade chips/round fries almost like a dip or nachos. Chopped carrot or cabbage would be good in it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FoodSciGeek from Won't use the can version ever again! This recipe is so simple and convenient, I will never buy the canned manwich sauce again. I use only a half cup ketchup and then a half cup of BBQ sauce so I can omit the brown sugar.
