« Porky Sloppy Joes  »

Note: This recipe was acknowledged by Saveur Magazine & QVC (yay!)

1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 1/4 lbs. ground pork (or ground beef)

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 Tablespoon of steak seasoning blend (such as McCormick Montreal Seasoning)

1 medium red onion, chopped

1 small red pepper, chopped

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 (14.5 oz) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes

1 (8 oz) can of tomato sauce

2 Tablespoons tomato paste

4 crusty rolls, split, lightly buttered and toasted

Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add oil and meat to pan.  Spread meat so that it browns evenly.  In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and seasoning blend.  Add to skillet with meat, stirring to evenly distribute.  Once meat is no longer pink, add onion and peppers to the skillet.  Reduce heat to medium and add worcestershire and red wine vinegar.  Cook for 3-5 minutes.  Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and paste to pan. Stir until thoroughly combined.  Reduce heat to simmer and cook sloppy joe mixture 5-7 minutes longer.

Assemble by placing sloppy joe mixture on top of toasted rolls and serve with your favorite sides such as lettuce, pickles or slaw.

Note:  Sloppy joes are often made with beef but give the ground pork a try.....tasty, tasty.
