The basic sloppy joe recipe is pretty much idiot-proof: meat/onions + barbecue sauce + simmer + roll. If I published that as a post on Z&P, I think Vinny might begin to reconsider my contributions to the blog.
Instead, I adapted the basic recipe using Japanese flavors & presentation; with that beautiful medley of veggies, I barely noticed the lack of meat. At the end, I topped it off with a fried egg, ’cause that’s what Japanese people do with pretty much everything. Bonus: a runny yoke ups the sloppy quotient!
The following recipe makes 2-3 sandwiches. You will need one (1) roll & one (1) egg [optional] per sandwich.
