Similar to a sloppy joe but the pork gives it an unique flavor.

Yum.. I loved this. I did also double the sauce and even so don't expect this to be saucy like a sloppy joe. I love ground pork and this was a great way to enjoy it Read More

The taste was good but after straining the meat several times I still couldn't get the grease out. Served to others and received no compliments at all. Probably would not make again. Read More

Halved the recipe and eyeballed the measurements. My 9 year old picky eaters twin boys loved it -- both ate 2! Forgot to add salt but noone noticed. I thought the brown sugar and ketchup are great! Read More

7 15 15... http://allrecipes.com/recipe/233131/pork-rites-taverns/... Well maybe a pound here is less than the first reviewers. Mine was soupy. I used half the meat - so essentially doubling the sauce (except for the salt) as all previous reviewers suggested. I added a half pound cooked crumbled Italian sausage to thicken it up. It helped.:) This is a slightly tangy sauce which I usually don't "go" for; but it was so subtle here I liked it. 'Also don't usually try ketchup (as a key ingredient) recipes - 'Couldn't detect it. Nice! I sauteed onion & garlic first then completed; thickened with cornstarch a t & a half. I'd add less water rather than thicken; 'can always add it if it's needed. As for the Italian sausage addition I liked it; but wouldn't go out of my way for it. Read More

I tried this recipe and it was a hit with my family. The only thing I did was double the sauce part add a chopped onion and also added 1/4 tsp of chipotle cayenne pepper. It was amazing! Read More

we all really liked it. I followed the ingredients of the sauce BUT did double the sauce. I like thick saucy Joe's. it was very flavorful yet simple. I didn't have to chop anything up. my husband and I usually like to discuss about tweaking recipes while eating. he said he wouldn't change a thing Read More
