    I'd tear up a Sloppy Joe right now.

    Fixed for me. My wife makes a sort of Sloppy Joe using alphabet soup, ketchup and mustard mixed into the beef. It is just not the same. It's not bad, but not a "real" Sloppy Joe.

    On the east coast, a sloppy joe also refers to a roast beef sandwich with swiss cheese, coleslaw and russian dressing.

    The East Coast of what? I've never heard that sandwich called a sloppy joe.

    I grew up in North Brunswick and Piscataway.. but I've also seen them on menus in the midwest listed as "New York Sloppy Joe"

    No, and I don't eat hamburger helper or Miracle Whip either.

    I had these tofu sloppy joe alternatives a few months ago.

    Worst meal ever. It was just plain disgusting.

    A tofu sloppy joe sounds like an abomination.

    Seems plausible - I'm sure tofu sloppy joes were invented by the vegetarians
