This sloppy joe recipe makes four sandwiches but can very easily be doubled to produce more.
To make these pork sloppy joes, I started by cooking some pork sausage meat in a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
I added some diced onions to the pan with the sausage meat as it was cooking.
I crumbled the sausage meat well.
Once the sausage meat was completely cooked, I drained the grease from the pan.
Then I added some Dr Pepper to the pan and left it to simmer, stirring occasionally.
After about 10 minutes the Dr Pepper had reduced and thickened quite a bit.
I added some BBQ sauce to the pan.
Then I stirred well and reduced the heat to low.
I lay four hamburger buns in a single layer on a baking sheet and then toasted them in the oven.
Once the buns were toasted, I spooned the sloppy joe mixture on to the buns and sprinkled some crispy fried onions on top.
These tasty sandwiches are the perfect mix of sweet and savoury.
The crispy fried onions add great texture to these sausage sloppy joes.
