Sloppy Joes



I haven’t had Sloppy Joes since I was a kid that I can remember – Mom used to make Sloppy Joes with Manwich, which obviously wouldn’t work for a primal lifestyle.  I wanted to make a primal version of Sloppy Joes, though, because my soon-to-be two year old is a little picky and I am trying to find kid friendly dinners for her.


This recipe turned out GREAT!  I love it.  I add some mustard & dill pickles on top of my Sloppy Joe meat (yum!).  For sides I made coleslaw and Cheddar Cauliflower muffins.

Sloppy Joes

2lbs of ground beef

1 tsp of butter (or coconut oil if Paleo)

1 green pepper, chopped

1 yellow onion, chopped

2 T apple cider vinegar

2 T yellow mustard

1 can of tomato sauce

1 can of tomato paste

1/4 cup water

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp sea salt

pepper to taste

Put the butter in a large pan, turn on medium heat and add chopped onion & chopped green pepper.  Let cook until the veggies start to get soft (about 8-10 minutes).  Then add meat and cook until brown.  Drain off the excess fat.  Add in the rest of the ingredients, stir well, and let cook on low for about an hour.
