Sloppy Joes is one of my go-to meals. I’ve used several different recipes, but this is the first time I’ve used NAKANO Seasoned Rice Vinegar. You can cook them up quickly on the stove-top or throw it all in the slow cooker and enjoy a simple meal with very little effort. Served with fries or potato chips- sloppy joes are always a hit here. I never use the canned mix, because it’s too easy to make them myself without it.
Because I had never used seasoned rice vinegar, I was glad they sent along a booklet featuring 30 recipes. I adapted this Sloppy Joes recipe just a tad by adding some ketchup, but other than that, I followed the book. It turned out delicious and I used less ingredients than my usually sloppy joe recipe. Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar is a no fat, low calorie condiment but is full of flavor.
