4 servings

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. ground pork (or ground beef)
  • ½ c. ketchup
  • ½ c. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c. Shredded cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • Juice of half lime
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 2 Thinly sliced green onions
  • 4 sesame buns

1) In a large skillet over medium heat, heat sesame oil until fragrant, about 30 seconds. (Sesame oil can burn quickly, so don't heat it for too long!) Add onions and cook until beginning to turn tender, about 4 minutes, then stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Add ground pork, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, and cook until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Add ketchup, hoisin, soy sauce, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and bring mixture to a simmer. Cook until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, combine shredded cabbage, mayonnaise and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.

Make sandwiches: Top the bottom half of each bun with sloppy joe mixture then sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Top with remaining bun halves.
