Asian Sloppy Joes

Without the Sloppy or Joe.
I don't know which one.
Read: No Bun!

But what are Sloppy Joes if not
a meat sauce of sorts?

I saw this in
Cuisine At Home
and had to try it. 
Who needs a bun?
I had corn pasta!

It's really good, 
I substituted ground turkey for the sirloin,
 cut back on the chili paste by about half
and added a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch
mixed with water at the end to thicken it up.

Here's the recipe with my adaptations:
 1 Lb. ground turkey
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
2 T. sesame oil
2 T. each of grated ginger and garlic
2T. soy sauce
1 t. chili garlic sauce
1 T. brown sugar
1 can sliced chestnuts, chopped
1 14 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained
1/3 cup Hoisin sauce
2 T. cornstarch

Saute the celery and onions in the sesame oil
till soft, add ginger and garlic, cook for about 1
minute, add the turkey and cook through.
Add remaining ingredients and heat through. 
Add the cornstarch/water combo at the end.

Serve it on a bun if you want to conform. 

Or not.
