@njpchevorlet,
Nobody other than yourself. You need to take the components, merge them together in the skillet and behold the best ever sloppy joe sauce you ever had. You see, it depends on your preference on sweetness, spice, onions, and the list goes on. No canned or jarred sauce does it, even as a starter, they all need to be doctored.

After the sauce, the sloppy joe itself will vary according to the cut of meat used and ground up.



Too many variables to take into account at this early hour.

Of course you do, otherwise you would have fired up Google before you posted.

Yes, like most good things, it's American.

Puke!

Where I come from a sloppy joe is a sweatshirt - and having sauce on it would be rather untidy!

@Ticomaya,
I don't see why asking a question here, rather than firing up Google, makes me ignorant. I didn't know what it was, so I asked the person who mentioned it. It's how we learn.
But thank you for your explanation.

Yes, that is how we learn.

I'm not calling you names, here. We all know that 10 seconds of google research would have yielded the answer to your question. By asking your question, sans research, you did mean to sound ignorant.

You were ignorant -- no harm in that. And now you are Able 2 Know.

The Chinese bakeries around here make barbequed pork buns. They're your average bakery bun, but instead of being filled with whipped cream or jelly, they're filled with barbequed pork.

They're sloppy joes without the slop!

You dont eat sloppy joes? I feel so bad that you were sheltered as a child from such a delight.

Margo lives in Oz-tralia. I suspect they forego many of the "delights" which are common in the United States.

You say that like it's a bad thing!

Sauce on sloppy joes here would indicate an incontinent eater!

A beef mix of already ground round and some tomato sauce from a gallon tin served over a miserable bun.

I remember liking it.

I've spent a lot of time hanging out at a music club with a vegetarian/vegan restaurant associated with it. They used to have a militant Straight Edge cook who, for some arcane reason, looked at the ingredients in Hunt's Manwich, the commercially available prepared sloppy joe sauce, and realized it was in fact a vegetarian sauce, I'm sure not by conscious design on Hunt's part. So he took, I think it was smoked fried tofu and ground it up and mixed it with Manwich on a hamburger bun, and made vegetarian sloppy joes for all the staff and the regulars. Which sounds kind of uber-strange, but was actually pretty good, and I'm not vegetarian. It was the vegetarian version of junior high school lunchroom cafeteria comfort food.

Sloppy Joes are so called because they are messy to eat. They are also especially delicious, and really fun to eat around vegans and other such sub-humans.

Wikerpedia says that the original sloppy joe was made by a cook in Sioux City, Iowa, a cook named Joe. They don't give a date, nor do they have a citation for the claim.

Talk of using tofu or TVP to make a sloppy joe is just disgusting. Why not just get a bowl of barbeque sauce with onions and eat it with a spoon?
