This is from Men's Health Magazine, where the recipe is titled Asian Sloppy Joes. Because of the ingredients, I think of these as being more 'Southwest'. We tried them today for the first time and they were delicious! I modified the ingredients only to suit what was available to me. I think this would also be good on tortillas.

Directions

  1. Heat a large saucepan over high heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat. Add the onions, celery, ginger, and jalapenos. Saute until soft, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add the pork and brown lightly.
  3. Add the tomatoes, barbecue sauce (I used Billy Bee), whiskey, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a simmer and cook stirring occasionally for 15-20 minutes or until mixture will mound sloppy-joe-style.
  4. Toast the rolls. On the bottom half, place a leaf of lettuce, then scoop on the pork mixture. Top with lettuce, guacamole, and the top half of the roll.
  5. Great with a pint of light beer.
