Asian Sloppy Joes

"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!"

    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.

    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.

    I made this for a take-home meal for my DS, he loved it, I did some amount adjustments for this, and used 2 yellow onions and 3 tablespoons fresh minced garlic, also add in dried red pepper flakes (lots!) the hoisin sauce sauce really brought this to another level, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)

    We really liked this dish a lot! I used grd lamb, but otherwise made it exactly as written, adding just sliced mushrooms I sauteed w/the onion rather than see them go bad. I paired it w/a dim sum appy that was another 123 game tag & I was happy. We love Asian cuisine & I crave all versions of sloppy joes, so it was a double play! Great combo of flavors here & in just the right proportions! Thx for posting this recipe for us. It is destined to be repeated.
