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.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: Serves 6 to 8


  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds lean ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 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 freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • dash ground allspice
  • split toasted buns


Use lean ground pork in this recipe or grind 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of pork loin or lean pork shoulder.

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.

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.

Taste and add salt, if needed.

Serve over split toasted buns with coleslaw and fries.

Serves 6 to 8
