    This is adapted from a recipe that appeared in Cuisine At Home recently. I added red onion and used more cilantro than the original. It is an easy dish to prepare in a hurry for a weeknight meal. The water chestnuts and hoisin sauce add an Asian flair to the standard Sloppy Joe. I served the dish with Myra Byanka's Napa Asian Coleslaw and steak fries. I served lime wedges and chopped cilantro at the table. For a wine I chose a 2011 Viansa Primitivo Rose' from Sonoma County. Chilled the wine has aromas and flavors of raspberry, sour cherry and citrus.


    • 1/2 cup celery, diced
    • 1/2 cup red onion, diced
    • 1/2 cup scallions, white part, sliced
    • 2 Tbs sesame oil
    • 2 Tbs ginger, grated
    • 2 Tbs garlic, pressed and creamed
    • 1 lb ground sirloin (93/7)
    • 2 Tbs low-sodium soy sauce
    • 1 Tbs chili garlic sauce
    • 1 Tbs brown sugar
    • 8 oz water chestnuts, drained, rinsed and rough chopped
    • 14 1/2 oz diced tomatoes, lightly drained and pureed
    • 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
    • 1 Tbs lime juice
    • 8 ea King's Hawaiian brand sweet rolls
    • 2 ea limes, quartered
    • 1 cup cilantro, chopped


    1. Saute celery, red onion in oil over medium high heat until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; cook for 1 minute.
    2. Add ground beef, soy sauce and brown sugar. Cook until beef is browned, about 5-6 minutes. Optionally for less fat brown the meat separately and drain before adding other ingredients.
    3. Stir in water chestnuts, tomatoes and hoisin sauce. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until thickened to your liking, 6-7 minutes.
    4. Remove from the heat and stir in scallions and lime juice. Season to taste with salt/pepper.
    5. Serve with buns, cilantro and lime wedges at the table.
