I should have read more of the reviews before I made this. I would definitely omit or lower the amount of vinegar. I was drinking white wine so maybe that added to the fact that all I tasted was vinegar? But I would make this again and leave out vinegar. Also, I used a can of diced tomatoes and thickened it with cornstarch and water. My hubby and two year old are eating it up.

Our updated Sloppy Joe takes lean ground beef and adds chopped cremini mushrooms and diced fresh plum tomatoes, all in a zesty sauce. Served on a whole-wheat bun, it's a hearty dinner sandwich that will please adults and kids alike.

I LOVE this recipie! To make it EVEN healthier, I substitute ground turkey for the ground beef. You'd never know the difference. Perfect for when my summer garden is overflowing with tomatos! And, I get to make great use of my vidalia chop wizzard!
I used what another review suggested and used canned diced tomatoes, although I used the whole can, for a doubled recipe. No mushrooms since I'm allergic. I also added a bit of brown sugar to sweeten it. Try not to use too much Vinegar use maybe half of whats suggested. My dad, who is a MEAT MEAT MEAT person, liked the flavor of it. My brother, well he will eat anything, but he seemed to like it. Over all, good meal.
Really delicious! I used canned diced tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes (about 2 heaping TBSP per plum tomato), and left out the mushrooms. I bet you could sneak a lot of other stuff into this recipe. I think spinach would be good! Great leftovers too.
I used this meal for my nutrition class and they gobbled it right up! plus, i got an A! so thanks for improving my GPA i will definately be making this meal again, thanks!!
