Sloppy Bao Sandwiches


1/8 cup vegetable oil 
1 lb ground beef 
2 tablespoons red onion, chopped
1 tablespoon lemongrass paste
1/8 cup thai red-curry paste 
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup ketchup 
1 tablespoons fish sauce 
1 teaspoons light-brown sugar 
1/4-1/2 cup dijon mustard 

baguette, halved horizontally 
granny smith apple, julienned
jalapenos, thinly sliced

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add beef, red onion, lemongrass, red-curry paste and garlic. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in ketchup, fish sauce, brown sugar and mustard. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  • Place baguettes in oven and cook until toasted, about 2 minutes. Fill each baguette with about 1 cup beef mixture and top with the apples and jalapenos.
I also used some of the sweet and spicy peppers from our garden. They were great!
