Delicious! I used gluten free bread, which was not that tasty, but necessary. I added romaine lettuce, pickles, and jalapenos to my bun, wow super yum. My non vegetarian husband was not that impressed, but he ate it never the less. I did not add the brown sugar, because manwich has enough sugar in it.

This recipe is wonderful! It's so easy because we just dump everything in a crockpot on high for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours and it's ready to go. Contrary to some review comments the original Manwich does not have Worcestershire sauce in it and IS completely vegearian. Make sure you are getting the correct stuff and there won't be any problems. I am really picky about a lot of foods, but this was sooo yummy. I'm sure you could even leave out the brown sugar and it would still be just as yummy, but I haven't tried it that way yet.

I had to make a note that there's no worcestershire sauce in original Manwich. It's a vegetarian product.

This is wonderful, but the only thing is that if you are using Manwich sauce, it is NOT completely vegetarian, unless the worchestershire sauce in it is anchovy-free. (One of the competitor brands has a sloppy joe sauce that IS vegetarian - I just won't name them here.)Otherwise, it's great and reheats wonderfully!
