These Sichuan Dan Dan style Sloppy Joe sliders are amazing. Easy to make, if you love Sichuan pepper, you will love these!


Units Scale

1 package slider buns

1 lb ground pork or turkey

2 T minced garlic

2 T chopped and peeled ginger

3/4 c chicken stock

2 T chili oil or chili garlic sauce(I used sauce)

2 T red wine vinegar

2 T soy sauce

4 t tahini

1 to 2 t of brown sugar

1 t cracked Sichuan peppercorns (I just smash them with a meat mallet and if you can’t find these this dish will still be good, however they do give a unique taste.)

12 T peanut butter to taste

4 sliced green onions

4 T chopped peanuts


Add oil to skillet and heat. Add pork and cook until just pink, then add garlic and ginger. Cook until light brown.

Add stock, chili oil or sauce, vinegar, soy, tahini and ground peppercorns. Season with pinch of sugar. Let cook for 7-10 minutes until thickened. (You may or may not want to add more broth or water. If you are serving this over noodles you may want it soupier, but for buns I think this is good the way it is.) Stir in peanut butter to taste.

Spoon between your buns. Sprinkle with green onions and peanuts.
