The following recipe was taken from the most recent edition of Sunset Magazine. It sounded tasty, so I made it for dinner last night. It was a delicious take on a classic recipe. You get a mix of the throwback to summer days as a kid and the rich flavors of southern Asia. I tweaked the slaw by doubling the lime juice and it mixed well with the coconut curry sauce on the sloppy joes to give a rich flavor. Using red cabbage provided a slightly different taste that worked well with the other flavors.

It is a pretty simple recipe and works well. You should give it a try!

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 large shallot, minced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 to 3 tbsp. red curry paste
  • 1 pound ground beef (We substituted ground turkey)
  • About 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 to 3 tsp. sugar
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 3 green onions, sliced white and light green parts only
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 tsp. lime juice
  • Pepper
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split and toasted

Preparation

  1. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic and cook, stirring, until shallot begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Stir in red curry paste and cook, stirring, 45 seconds. Add beef and salt, breaking beef into small pieces with a wooden spoon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beef is just cooked through, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add coconut milk and sugar, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until most of liquid is absorbed, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, make slaw: In a medium bowl, combine cabbage, green onions, cilantro, remaining 2 tbsp. oil, and 1 tbsp. lime juice. Toss to coat, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Remove beef from heat and stir in remaining 2 tsp. lime juice. Make sandwiches with beef mixture and slaw.
