A tasty barbecue sauce flavors these pork sloppy joes, making them similar to a quick pulled pork. If you grind your own pork or mince it in a food processor, use pork loin with a little fat or lean pork shoulder.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds lean ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup onion (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar (light or dark, packed)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Dash ground allspice
  • 6 to 8 buns (split and toasted)

How to Make It

  1. Use lean ground pork in this recipe or grind 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of pork loin or lean pork shoulder.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the ground pork and cook, stirring and breaking up, until no longer pink. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  3. Add the onion and bell pepper; cook, stirring, until the onion is lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and continue cooking for 2 minutes. Add the pork back to the skillet; add the ketchup, water, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, peppers, and allspice. Bring to a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  1. Taste and add salt, if needed.
  2. Serve over split toasted buns with coleslaw and fries.
