Chinese Sloppy Joes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mandabears

I ate this @ a friends house and loved it and after whineing a lot, she gave me the recipe. She served this on hamburger buns, but I served these on crusty french rolls.

We all like sloppy joes, but I was tired of the usual recipe, so when I saw this one I had to try it. This was good and easy- perfect to throw together last minute. I tossed in a handful of roughly chopped water chestnuts and they added a nice crunch along with the green onions. I also added a light drizzle of sesame oil. There wasn't a speck left. Anything that all four of us agree on is in my recipe box to stay. Thanks!
