Korean cuisine is comprised of mostly spicy, savory, sour, simple, and satisfying dishes with flavors that makes creating my Korean Beef Sloppy Joe a lot of fun!
This particular recipe started out as an experiment and ended up as a hit with the family. It took a few times to get the flavor I was looking for, but once I got it just perfect I had to share with you all. Talk about tasty!

- 4 brioche rolls
- 2 green onions sliced thinly
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef , 85/15 fat content
- 1/2 cup hoisin
- 3 cloves garlic , minced
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon sriracha
- Number One, In a large skillet add in the beef, lower the heat to medium and cook well, breaking it apart but leaving some chunks about the size of a raspberry or small grape (don’t crush the heck out of it, the larger crumbles will help give the sandwich stability).
- Number Two, Cook until well browned (5-6 minutes), then add in the garlic, sesame oil, ketchup, hoisin, water, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sriracha and stir together well until the sauce starts to evaporate and the mixture becomes “sloppy” (about 5-6 minutes).
- Number Three, Toast the buns then spoon over the mixture and top with green onions.
