    I didn't know there ever WAS a "sloppy joe seasoning mix" LOL. I suspect
    that the recipe existed long before McCormack's packaged a mix was
    marketed? How did we ever eat before packaged foods?!?! <she says with
    tongue in cheek>
    I just used the old recipe I found in Joy of Cooking or Betty Crocker
    (but am too lazy to get out of bed and go downstairs and look, sorry!)

    I never use those seasoning mix packs because you can always do better
    adding what you like without the massive amount of salt.

    Just add the seasoning/taste you like. For sloppy joes I would add more
    aromatics to the above including celery and garlic and some chili powder
    and a couple grinds of black pepper. If you want to thicken it just add
    a cornstarch slurry at the end and let it come back to a boil.

    Why don't you prepare your own, with ground meat, no salt added tomato
    sauce, aromatics (onion, bell pepper), and herbs/spices (black pepper,
    garlic, hot pepper if desired), you don't need any stinkin' mix.

    This is the the *real* Corck-Pot recipe for Sloppy Joes. I didn't
    think I liked sweet Sloppy Joes either until I used this recipe.

    http://www.crock-pot.com/recipedetai...?recipeid=1401

    I tried using less sugar and it just doesn't good. The sugar in
    here is what makes it, IMO.

    And a picture of the results:

    (note that has some leftover smoked pork pieces in it)

    Does anyone have a recipe for the 'sloppy joe seasoning mix'?
    I don't at all like sweet sloppy joes, so anything that has ketchup or
    brown sugar as ingredients, which seem to be about 90% of them, I just
    skip over. The McCormick seasoning mix is pretty good, but I now have to
    watch my sodium intake so now need to skip prepared mixes too.
    Can anyone help me?

    Thanks!

    We just simmer the hamburger in barbecue sauce. Works for us.
