Sloppy joe Recipe

So I mentioned last week that I have ventured into clean eating over the past few years.  What that essentially means is eliminating processed foods – this really changed my cooking style – but it’s been a fun journey.  My kids aren’t always super cooperative, they want their mac-n-cheese, hotdogs, and sugary treats.  It often seems like a constant battle, but one dinner they both enjoy is Sloppy Joe sandwiches. Here’s a recipe for you to try – this is a combination of recipes from Make Ahead Paleo, by Tammy Credicott and Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook, by Sarah Fragoso.

2 Tbsp onion, diced

1 large bell pepper (red, yellow, or green)

2 carrots, finely diced

1-2 cloves garlic, minced

2 pounds ground beef

2 Tbsp honey

1 tsp sea salt

Black pepper to taste

1 tsp granulated garlic

1 tsp granulated onion

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1 tsp dry mustard

1 Tbsp red wine vinegar

1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce

1 can (6 oz) tomato paste

In a large skillet, heat coconut oil over medium heat.   Add onion, pepper & carrots, saute until the vegetables are tender.  Stir in garlic, beef, honey, salt, pepper, granulated garlic, granulated onion, Italian seasoning, and dry mustard.  After the meat has browned, reduce heat to low, add red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce; stir to combine.  Add tomato sauce and tomato paste, stir well.  Cook until heated through – about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serve on lettuce or buns.
