    Question Tomato Sauce in USA??

    Can anyone tell me what tomato sauce is in USA?

    I found a recipe for Sloppy Joes, and it says to use tomato sauce, and ketchup.
    Could USA tomato sauce possibly be tomato paste here?

    I'd say tomato puree (maybe the italian one I can't remember what its called...)

    tomato sauce Substitutes: tomato puree (this is unseasoned, while tomato sauce has salt, pepper, and other seasonings added) OR 3 parts tomato paste + 4 parts water (tomato paste has only salt added, while tomato sauce includes salt, pepper, and other seasonings. Notes: tomato sauce (in Australia) = catsup (in the US)

    So you could get some pasta sauce and puree it and I'd say thats pretty much it

    For some reason this thread made me think of the Simpsons episode where Mr Burns gets confused about catsup and ketchup.... tehehe (sorry a bit off topic)

    Lol Dach, I actually thought the same thing when I saw that Cailin had quoted that tomato sauce is catsup!

    Hi!
    You can find Heinz tomato ketchup in the grocery stores! It will work well for the sloppy joes... I hope that helps - I moved here from the states nearly 7 years ago and it has taken awhile to find everything that I'm used to from the states.
