Sloppy Pork Joes

served with Creamy Lime Slaw

Read more

One of the most underrated childhood comfort foods, in our opinion? The humble sloppy Joe. Adults and kids alike will love this version, which has a few flavor upgrades to take it to the next level. Ground pork is browned with scallions, spicy chipotle powder, and a sweet and smoky BBQ seasoning blend, then simmered with mango, ketchup, and lime juice until thick and caramelized. The filling’s then stuffed into potato buns with a cabbage and lime slaw for creaminess and crunch. Tasty nostalgia on the table in just 15 minutes? It doesn’t get much better than that.

• Wash and dry all produce. • Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Zest and quarter lime. Drain mango over a small bowl, reserving 2 TBSP juice (4 TBSP for 4 servings).


• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add pork* and a big pinch of salt; cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned, 3-5 minutes (it’ll finish cooking in step 5). TIP: If there’s excess grease in your pan, carefully pour it out.


• Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine coleslaw, scallion greens, mayonnaise, lime zest, 1 TBSP reserved mango juice (2 TBSP for 4 servings), and a big squeeze of lime juice until thoroughly combined. Season generously with salt and pepper. • Halve buns; toast if desired.


• Add scallion whites, BBQ Seasoning, and ¼ tsp chipotle powder (add more if you like things spicy) to pan with pork. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute.


• Add mango, ketchup, half the cornstarch (all for 4 servings), remaining reserved mango juice, 1⁄3 cup water (½ cup for 4), and a big squeeze of lime juice to pan with pork mixture. Simmer, stirring, until mixture has thickened and pork is cooked through, 2-3 minutes. • Turn off heat. Season generously with salt and pepper if desired.


• Divide pork filling and slaw between buns. Divide sloppy joes between plates. Serve with any remaining slaw and lime wedges on the side.
