What to do with your free ground pork, you ask?

We’re glad you asked, actually. One of our favorite ways to prepare ground pork is to put it in Sloppy Joe’s. We promise your whole family will love them. Here’s a delicious recipe to get you started:

Ground Pork Sloppy Joe’s, Courtesy of Cat Cora

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 pounds extra-lean ground pork
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, cored and chopped
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
3/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Kosher salt
6 sesame buns, toasted

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add the pork and brown, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon. When the meat is still slightly pink, remove from the pan and set aside. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add the onion and the bell pepper and cook, stirring, until soft and lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low. Return the pork to the pan and stir in the garlic powder, cinnamon, Worcestershire, Tabasco, ketchup, brown sugar and water. Add the black pepper and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the flavors are blended and the mixture is saucy. Spoon onto toasted buns and serve. Taste and add salt, if needed.
