  • This is delicious and super easy! The longer you simmer, the better it is. I like my sloppy joes a little sweet, so I used honey barbecue sauce. A great use for TVP as it absorbed the flavors from the liquid. Definitely going to add this to my weekly meals. - 3/6/16

  • Great recipe! I make this at least once a week. It is incredibly delicious and tastes just like meat sloppy joes. If you like your joes to be sloppy, you'll want to add more water. I usually double the recipe, then add more water to get the consistency I want. Serve with oven fries. Yum! - 5/28/14
