  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 sweet onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic paste
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound ground pork or chicken
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 14-ounce can drained fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 4 brioche buns
  • broccoli slaw for garnish
  • shredded napa cabbage for garnish


  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and add the butter. Add in the onion, garlic paste, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add in the ground pork or chicken, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon. Brown the meat, stirring often, for about 6 minutes. Stir in the hoisin sauce, soy sauce, tomatoes and lime juice. Bring the mixture to a boil then reduce it to a simmer and cook until the mixture thickens, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve the sloppy joes on the brioche buns, topped with both the broccoli slaw and napa cabbage.
