    My DH normally swears by namebrand joe mix - he said this was pretty close to the "real thing" although I did catch him adding a dash of homemade Franks Hot sauce to it!

      Easier than tomato sauce and chili sauce (and cheaper): use 2 cups catsup.

      My homemade Sloppy Joe mix is similar. I also use tomato catsup in it. Amount varies depending on the amount I am making. I also use it for hot dog sauce. Yum!! Good eats!

      Looks pretty good. I don't have a recipe for Sloppy Joe's, just use worcheshire sauce, ketchup, mustard, and a little bbq sauce for flavor. Brown beef and sometimes dried onions. So simple and everyone asks I do it. I'll have to try your recipe too.
