Asian Sloppy Joes from Darryl

One 15-ounce can tomato sauce

1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup light brown sugar

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 teaspoon chopped garlic

1 teaspoon chopped ginger

1 teaspoon hot sauce

Sloppy Joes:

2 teaspoons canola oil

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced

1 pound ground pork

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 hamburger buns, toasted


For the sauce: In a bowl, whisk together the tomato sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, tomato paste, vinegar, garlic, ginger and hot sauce until blended.

For the sloppy joes: In a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil. When it is hot, add the onions and peppers and cook until they are soft, about 5 minutes. Push the vegetables to one side of the pan and add the ground pork. Break up any lumps and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until the pork is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. If there is a lot of fat in the pan, spoon some of it out and discard.

Add the sauce to the pan, bring to a simmer and cook until the pork mixture has thickened but is still a bit loose, about 15 minutes.
