    Really good and fast! I simmered it for about 25 - 30 minutes to melt the flavors and reduce the sauce a bit. I used equal part ketchup and BBQ sauce and left out the jalapenos and vinegar. Used a dash of chipotle chili powder and added a bit of salt. As for "worthy of a special occation" - I would serve this for a casual get together, like a Super Bowl party. Delicious and so easy.

    This recipe was very easy and actually the best Sloppy Joe I have ever had. My fiance and I felt like kids again. I used ground buffalo meat and just eyeballed the other ingredients since I used 1/2 the meat than called for. It was perfect for two!

    This was an easy, tasty recipe. We made it for a large group of people and everyone enjoyed it. Next time we might use slightly less ketchup, as the ketchup flavor was a little overpowering. Overall, would make it again when I need something quick.

    My family loves this sloppy joe recipe and has been known to use it as a sauce for coney dogs too. I believe it is important to use a good quality barbecue sauce. I always add more jalapenos and sauce. I also cook it a bit longer to allow the flavors to meld.

    I made this for my me and my husband and we both LOVED it. I made one alteration though. Instead of using jalapenos, I used half of a green pepper instead and it was incredible. This meal was very filling and tasty. I will definitely be making this again.

    My family & I thought this recipe was awesome...won't be looking any further for sloppy joe recipe...this is a keeper!! Only change I made because of prior reviews...I did not add the diced tomatoes...followed the recipe to a 'T', otherwise...loved the kick, but not too spicy.

    Delicious for a quick dinner. I took Christy Jordan's advice (on the video) and substituted pickle relish for the jalapenos. Definitely a keeper! =^..^=

    This was good. I didn't use worchester sauce since I was out and it still tasted good. Family liked it. Had a nice kick to it without using the hot peppers.

    My hubby has loved sloppy joes since he was a kid in the 70s so I thought I'd make this for him. We BOTH loved this. It's by far the best sloppy joe recipe I've ever made. I did add one chopped onion to the burger when browning though, and it came out fantastic. Thanks for sharing your recipe Richard! : )
