Chances are you make sloppy Joes when you can’t think of anything else to make, but Chef Yia Vang of Union Hmong Kitchen stopped by to make the Sloppy Chow Sandwich, which is something you’ll want to make for dinner this week.
The Sloppy Chow
5lb Ground Beef
2 Tablespoon Mae Ploy Curry Paste
8oz Coconut Milk
1 C diced Onions
1 Tablespoon chopped garlic
1 Tablespoon chopped ginger
1 Tablespoon chopped lemongrass
1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
1 Tablespoon ground coriander
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in other ingredients Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Serve on buns.
Coconut Crema Sauce
1/3 c Coconut milk
2 T Sour Cream
1 T lime juice.
Mix with a whisk in a mixing bowl, (or in a whipped cream dispenser if they have one)
Put a dollop on top of the sandwich, top with fresh herbs ( Thai basil, cilantro, mint) and add some crunch with taro chips or straws, or potato chips or straws.
Yia uses taro chris or draws, but potato chips or straws work great too!
