Servings 4


  • 2 pounds ground, beef
  • 4 cloves minced, garlic
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1-1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Sriracha sauce
  • 4 soft, rolls or burger buns


  • In a large skillet, brown beef and drain if lots of extra fat, return to skillet.
  • After meat is browned, add all remaining ingredients to skillet with browned beef and mix well over medium heat. This will be a loose sauce at first. You will want to cook this down between 5-10 minutes, so that the extra water will evaporate and the sauce becomes thicker.
  • Split buns in half and top with several spoonfuls of sloppy joe mix, top with a tablespoon of the Spicy Sriracha Mayo, get a good grip and enjoy!!!


**Note: I serve this with pickled carrot and onion on the side.  Recipe is in the post. 
**Also note: recipe for Spicy Sriracha Mayo recipe is also in body of blog post.
