We loved this. Even my girls loved it! I added a bit more of most of the flavoring. So, 2 cans tomato sauce, and 2 tsp vinegar, 2 tsp worcestershire, full tsp mustard, etc. I also did a tsp regular sugar, because my hubby's able to handle that.

Sounds very tasty… I'll have to try this, but using extra lean ground beef to cut down on the fat.
