THis is an all time Lau family favorite recipe that we got from a long time family friend, Rochelle. Our kids knew her by the honorific Aunt, which is a tradition for family friends on my side of the family.
We have love'd this recipe for years. Now that there are just the two of us at home we make a half batch, using one large can of tomato sauce. I've tried a few other sloppy joe recipes over the years but we keep going back to this one because it is awesome.
John and I both enjoy Chile Verde and I wanted to see how it would turn out if we used lamb instead of pork. This is my favorite recipe - in part because it cheats and uses a jar of green salsa and nothing is simpler to make. It is handy to have these super easy recipes for busy days when monitoring the progress of a meal all day just isn't an option.
We both quite liked this lamb version of Chile Verde and Tom gave it a thumbs up when he was home from college and polished off the leftovers.
