Another one from Rachael Ray. I've tried other sloppy joe-type recipes from her and I've always enjoyed them, so I thought I would post this latest one for safekeeping.
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 lb chorizo sausage, casing removed, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, grated or finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 2 teaspoons ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon allspice
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 lime, juice and zest of
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 4 Portuguese rolls, split
- 4 slices swiss cheese
- 3 -4 large dill pickles, chopped
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chorizo and cook, stirring, until browned, 2 minutes. Add pork and cook, crumbling it with a spoon, until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the onion, garlic, paprika, coriander, and allspice; season with salt and pepper to taste and cook for 5 minutes.
- Add brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, lime zest, and lime juice, and mix well. Stir in chicken broth and tomato sauce and simmer for a couple of minutes.
- Lightly toast the rolls. Pile the meat mixture onto the roll bottoms. Cover with swiss cheese and broil until melted, about 30 seconds. Scatter the pickles on the sandwiches, cover with roll tops, and serve.
This was the best sloppy joe I have ever had!! I didn't use chorizo though, I used a chicken and mozzerella sausage because it was less fattening and I substituted the ground pork for lean ground turkey. It tasted wonderful and what really makes this dish is the chopped dill pickle on the sandwich, don't leave that out!! Thanks for sharing this recipe..
