I adopted this recipe because my niece makes this with hamburger for large family gatherings, she makes it for every graduation picnic she has! It is very good, the rice helps to stretch the meat and takes on the color and flavors infused in her Sloppy Joes. My niece got her recipe from her mother-in-law, I can't wait to tell her about this version!
