Notes about this recipe

  • Dannausc on May 19, 2022

    It was good, but not nearly as good as some of the other recipes in this book. Not something I’d make again.

    I halved the gochgang to keep the spice reasonable for my toddlers and used this as a taco filling, along with avocado, radish pickles, and green cabbage kimchi.

  • TrishaCP on April 03, 2021

    This was really good and easy, but definitely don’t skip the pickles. (Needed in my opinion to balance the salt and spice of the sloppy joe mix.)

    Delicious! Subbed ground chicken for the pork, otherwise made exactly as written. Wouldn't change a thing.

    Such a good easy meal (served with some buns, fries and brussel sprouts). Would easily make again (pun intended).

    I enjoyed the flavors on this a lot, as well as its ease of preparation. But.... it just wasn't "sloppy" enough for me to consider it a true sloppy joe variant. It needs some sort of sauce to bind the meat together, which it didn't have. I did LOVE the leftovers in tacos the next day, and could see it being a great filling for lettuce wraps as someone mentioned below.

    Excellent.! Put the ground pork in the marinade the night before & it's a quick and delicious weeknight meal the next night. I didn't think it was very hot; but I like some heat. I added some cholula on mine since I was out of kimchi. I also used some leftovers as an omelet filling. Very good. This is going in our rotation.

    Very quick meal once you've marinated the ground meat. Delicious and is now on my "dinner to repeat" list. Too much heat for my kids but easily adapted to their preference.

  • sheepishjen on June 08, 2017

    Delicious and simple. I was worried it might be dried out, but it was moist and wonderful. Cutting back on bread, we wrapped it in lettuce leaves instead.

    Delicious and VERY full-flavored.
