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.

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.

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!!

DEFINATELY leave out the vinegar. it was way too overpowering. But add a little bbq sauce on the bun and it's great!

I was really excited to make this recipe. I bought fresh mushrooms, tomatoes and ... that's what I got. Tomatoes and mushrooms. In ketchup. Even though I substituted tomato puree for ketchup. Do the people that love this recipe ever cook? Not to put anyone down, because I tried this because I work 10-12 hour days and am looking for QUALITY recipes that are not junk. This was not it
