From China’s Shaanxi province, rou jia mo are small, round flatbreads stuffed with pork belly that’s been braised with soy sauce and spices, then chopped to small bits. They’re often referred to as “Chinese hamburgers.” Our ultra-easy, rou jia mo-inspired sandwiches are made with quick-cooking ground pork and dark, thick hoisin sauce, so it wouldn’t be wrong to think of them as Chinese sloppy Joes. The baking soda may seem like an odd ingredient, but it keeps the pork tender by lowering the pH.
pounds ground pork
tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
01Adjust an oven rack about 4 inches from the element and heat the broiler. In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix together the pork, soy sauce, baking soda and 3 tablespoons water; let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Would this be good (or too soupy/sloppy joe-y) to use as filling for lettuce cups (have one family member with a gluten intolerance)?
