Korean BBQ Carrot Sloppy Joes

Korean BBQ Carrot Sloppy Joes

This meat-free vegetarian BBQ carrot sandwich is satisfying and tasty! Even my husband who eats meat thought this was delicious and filling.  The texture of the carrots and onions has a nice bite with the sauce – if you’re looking to eat less meat, try out this tasty and inexpensive recipe.

I made this super yummy vegetarian BBQ carrot 🥕sandwich with the Jayone Korean BBQ Sauce, Kalbi Bulgogi.

The flavorful Korean-style BBQ sesame and soy sauce is infused with pear in pineapple concentrates which lends the perfect amount of sweetness. I topped it off with a lemon apple vinegar slaw to add tang and a soft bun.



You Will Need: (Makes 4-5 sandwiches)

4 Large Carrots – Shredded (the longer the threads, the easier it stays together – mine shreds were short because I used a food processor)

1/2 Red Onion – Shredded

1/2 Cup of Jayone Korean BBQ Sauce, Kalbi Bulgogi

1 Cup of Water

Avocado Oil

4-5 Soft Buns ( I used a regular bun, but a Hawaiian style would add sweetness and complement the BBQ flavors well)

How to Prepare

In a large saucepan, light heat the oil, carrots, and onion. As the carrots become coated and start to soften, add a cup of water. Let simmer for 5 minutes, turning occasionally.

Add the Korean BBQ sauce and simmer for a few more minutes, stirring to incorporate the sauce.  The cooked carrot mixture should be soft and fragrant when cooked through.

Serve hot on buns and top with purple cabbage slaw! I tossed the cabbage with lemon juice, apple cider vinegar and salt. It makes an easy tangy slaw that pairs well with the BBQ carrots!


Jayone offers other tasty Korean sauces that would be tasty with other vegetarian dishes.
