Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1/4 to 1/3 pound chorizo, casing removed, finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  3. 1 pound ground pork
  4. 1 onion, finely chopped
  5. 2 cloves garlic, grated or finely chopped
  6. 2 teaspoons paprika
  7. 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  8. 1 teaspoon allspice
  9. Salt and pepper
  10. 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  11. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  12. Grated peel and juice of 1 lime
  13. 1 cup chicken broth
  14. One 8-ounce can tomato sauce
  15. 4 Portuguese rolls or submarine rolls, split
  16. 4 deli slices Swiss cheese
  17. 3 to 4 large dill or half-sour pickles, chopped
  18. 1 bag plantain or other chips

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the chorizo and cook, stirring, until browned, 2 minutes.
  3. Add the pork and cook, crumbling it with a spoon, until browned, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Stir in the onion, garlic, paprika, coriander, and allspice; season with salt and pepper to taste and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Add the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, lime peel and lime juice and mix well; stir in the chicken broth and tomato sauce and simmer for a couple of minutes.
  6. Lightly toast the rolls under the broiler. Pile the meat mixture onto the roll bottoms. Cover with the Swiss cheese and broil until melted, about 30 seconds.
  7. Scatter the pickles on the sandwiches, cover with the roll tops, and serve with the plantain chips alongside.

Serves 4.

sloppy joes are usually made with ground beef,and of course the sauce(a tomatoey-worcesterchirey sauce,lol) but these sound good with the sauasage instead. Cheese is really good on sloppy joes,imo. Ms660bk, we love chinese food! :)

I never saw a Sloppy Joe with cheese on it. I think I'd pass on that. But I'm a big fan of Portuguese rolls, and that sounds much better than the hamburger buns I grew up eating them on.

Yummy - can you tell me more about Portuguese rolls? Hubby is Portuguese and we've never had these. Do they sell them in CA bay area?

I used to eat these all the time as a kid. We'd have these only once in a blue moon since every day was, well, Chinese food. Only special occasions warranted a sloppy joe. :) Or in even more rare cases - Pizza Hut!
