Sloppy joes with a twist! Served it with white rice and steamed veggies. An adaptation of a R. Reisman recipe. If the sauce is not thick enough, add a bit of flour or cornstarch and it will do the trick!

Ahhhhhh, I'm sitting back, just glad to have finally tried this meal. I did use duck sauce, since my hoisin sauce seems to have grown feet and walked away. It was such an excellent, subtle flavor. I didn't put the carrots in either, because my son is the only carrot fiend here and wasn't going to be home. Dad put cheese on it, but oh, well...that's one of the 4 of us who weren't gaga over the dish's original flavor. It's a 5 in my book! Thanks so much! I'm going to buy some more hoisin, make this, and then tie the bottle down. :D

My DD loved these. I omitted the carrot (personal preference) and used Vidalia onion. The hoisin sauce adds a great taste! Can't wait to make these for our next potluck.

We thought this was good. I had intended to serve on buns until I got to the last step in the directions! I added a little corn starch to thicken it up and served on buns and it was great! Much better than regular canned sloppy joes.
