I love sloppy joes ~ they aren’t just for kids, are they?
It’s something I have tried many recipes of. This recipe is adapted from one that was in The Chicago Tribune years ago.
It’s the addition of cranberry sauce and liquid smoke with all the spices that makes it really tasty. I know, you’re probably saying “cranberry sauce?” It’s a great surprise ingredient! It really adds to the flavor and does not make the sloppy joes overly sweet.
If you like sloppy joes, you must try this; it’s a keeper for sure!
