I had a bad sloppy joe recipe experience the other day. The recipe I was referencing had too many fancy ingredients and the mixture came out bitter. Chef Patrick graciously shared his Sloppy Joe recipe with me and I have to say, it was yummy good. Perfect texture and flavor -- hope you'll give it a try.
**Tip: After grilling the buns, spread a thin layer of veganaise on both sides of bun to keep from getting soggy.
