Pork Sloppy Joes

Use leftover pork from Balsamic Roasted Pork Tenderloin in this recipe. If you don't have any leftovers, simply brown a batch (about one pound) of ground turkey or chicken breast or lean ground beef. When you're ready to serve, break out the big rolls and even bigger napkins--this is one delightfully messy crowd pleaser.

    Good Health Note: To add vitamin C (and some terrific green color), add one seeded and diced green bell pepper when you add the corn.
