Oh, yum! This recipe sounds so good. Do you think it would work well if I use a sugar substitute in it since I am diabetic. I love that you add soy and Worcestershire sauces to the recipe. I think they give the meat a rich, deep flavor, don't you?

I have always loved loose meat sandwiches but never made them myself. This recipe tempted me to give it a go (anything in a slow cooker is tempting to me!) and it is amazing. I wish I could think of a tweek or addition to the recipe but it is great just the way it is. And it is a great weekend, Saturday night meal with the kids. I guess one change I would make would be to change the sweetened bun to a healthier sesame seed bun. Anytime I can reduce sweetness or sugar in my kids' diet, the better!

I have never seen this dish served at a diner or restaurant before, but maybe it was before my time. However, when I was in elementary school, my best friend's mother used to make a dish similar to this one. I remember when she was cooking it looked kind of like a sloppy joe, but without the "slop." She always would pour in some the juice from a jar of pickles. Come to think of it, I do remember a loose meat stand in the show "Roseanne" but I did not really know what it was. I'll have to try it!

In Wichita, KS it's NuWay! I have fun memories of eating there! I think I'll make up this recipe just to share memories with my four kiddos. I just realized that my eldest son has complained about my use of vinegar in sloppy joes for years but I use white vinegar and this recipe calls for apple cider. I can see the difference and I can't wait to see what he says about this recipe!

Really hard to beat the original Maid -Rite from Iowa!! Loved them!!
