Reader: Manwich makes a great Sloppy Joe

Their hatred of the column blinded a few readers to the fact that Jenn Wohletz took over yesterday's In the Weeds shift from Kyle Garratt. (Yes, many, many writers pay the bills with restaurant jobs.)

But a few discerning folks homed in on the critical point in Jenn's piece: the reference to Manwich.

And that inspired this recipe from davebarnes:

I love Sloppy Joes. Sauté chopped green pepper and onion. Set aside. Brown 1# of burger. Add back pepper, onions, 1 can/jar of Manwich, 1 cup of water and a splash of vinegar. Simmer to thicken. Toast buttered bun and serve.

And if you make this recipe at home, of course, you don't need to worry about Kyle or Jenn or anyone else serving you...
