Thanks for your response, HeatherH104. I do once a month cooking and I think I'll try this in my next rotation :)

It is more sweet/sour. It has a slightly different taste than sloppy joes.

Thanks for your comment, I hope you like it! :)

Seems like a recipe my family will like. Does it have a sweet/sour taste or is it more like sloppy joes?

Hi thanks for your comment!

I did put it on regular white bread in the picture, that's the way my kids like it. I put it on a bun. We make this a lot, it is easy and delicious. :)

Hello: Your recipe looks so easy. Is that normal white bread that you served it with?
