  1. 2 tsp. sesame oil
  2. 1/2 onion, chopped
  3. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 1 lb. ground pork (or ground beef)
  5. 1/2 c. ketchup
  6. 1/2 c. hoisin sauce
  7. 2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
  8. 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  9. 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  10. kosher salt
  11. Freshly ground black pepper
  12. 1 c. Shredded cabbage
  13. 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  14. Juice of half lime
  15. 2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  16. 2 Thinly sliced green onions
  17. 4 sesame buns
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat sesame oil until fragrant, about 30 seconds. (Sesame oil can burn quickly, so don't heat it for too long!) Add onions and cook until beginning to turn tender, about 4 minutes, then stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add ground pork, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, and cook until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Add ketchup, hoisin, soy sauce, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and bring mixture to a simmer. Cook until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine shredded cabbage, mayonnaise and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Make sandwiches: Top the bottom half of each bun with sloppy joe mixture then sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds. Top with remaining bun halves.
