Turkey Sloppy Joes with Hoisin

This serves 8 to 12 on slider buns. Amended from Fine Cooking 2013

1 Tbs vegetable oil
1 medium red onion, halved and sliced thin
2 garlic cloves, mashed and sprinkled with salt
1 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
12 oz can tomato sauce
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1 cup cilantro leaves - be sure to remove all of the stems
2 Tbs lime juice; more to taste
Slider buns

Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium high heat.  Add onion, stirring frequently, until soft about 5 minutes.  Reduce heat to medium and add garlic and ginger until fragrant, about 1 minute.  Add turkey stirring constantly.  Break up into small pieces.  Cook until lightly browned about 5 minutes.  Stir in tomato sauce and hoisin sauce.  Cook until sauce is thickened about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in cilantro and lime juice.  Adjust lime juice to taste.

Condiments:  Fresh cilantro, Asian slaw (vinegar based), lettuce, tomatoes (fat heirloom are nice), dill pickles and very thin slice granny smith apples.

This keeps well in a slow cooker on WARM.
