MONDAY, September 25 marks the start of QMS's Tasty Little Pork Week, and to celebrate, they've developed several recipes using the tasty meat.

A change from beef and lamb, pork is a healthy choice for the whole family, it is nutritionally rice and a good addition to any varied diet.

This Sloppy Joe recipe, with a tasty purple slaw on the side, is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike!

Prep: 20mins

Cook: 20 mins

Serves: 1


  • 1 Medium Carrot 100g Specially Selected
  • Pork Lean Mince
  • Pinch Garlic Granules
  • Pinch Sea Salt
  • 100g Can Chopped
  • Tomatoes
  • 1 Spring Onion
  • 40g Cooked Beetroot
  • in natural juice
  • 40g Red Cabbage 2.5ml Honey
  • 10ml Cider or White
  • Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Wholemeal Wrap


1. Peel the carrot and grate coarsely. Heat a saucepan until hot, then add the mince, garlic, a little salt, and half the grated carrot. Stir fry everything for

1-2 mins until the pork is browned all over. Add the tomatoes and 30ml water, stir well, lower the heat, cover and simmer for

20 mins, stirring occasionally, until thick and cooked through.

2. Meanwhile, grate the beetroot coarsely. Slice the red cabbage thinly and place in a bowl. Trim and chop the spring onion. Put all the vegetables in the bowl with the remaining grated carrot and mix well. Blend the honey and vinegar together with a little salt, then stir into the vegetables to coat them. Leave aside until ready to serve.

3. Lay the wrap on a board and make a cut into the centre of the wrap.

4. Carefully fold a quarter of the wrap over on itself.

5. Continue to fold the wrap in quarters to make a pocket.

6. To serve, hold the wrap pocket open in one hand and spoon in some of the slaw to half-fill it. Carefully top with the pork sauce.

Accompany with the remaining slaw and sprinkle with extra spring onion if you like.

Tip: Replace the wrap with a pitta

if preferred, or why not try with Scotch Beef or Lamb for a flavour change. For a fruit slaw, replace the beetroot with a grated unpeeled eating apple.
