There's something so comforting about a good old sloppy joe. Warm, beefy, and a little bit messy, it's the perfect meal for when you're in the mood for something hearty and delicious. Whether you're a fan of the classic ketchup-based sauce or you prefer trying out different flavor combinations, there's no denying the appeal of a sandwich that practically begs to be eaten with your hands.
½ onion, diced
1 bell pepper
½ cup water
1lb organic grass fed beef
3 tbsp organic tomato paste
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
⅓ tsp liquid stevia*
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp Himalayan pink salt
4 leaves of romaine lettuce or cabbage
Add onion and bell pepper to a non-stick fry pan, cooking for 5-7 mins on medium heat, add water or low sodium broth to keep from sticking
Add ground beef or chicken and cook through. (note: For those using ground beef, after it is cooked, place the beef in a colander and rinse it under HOT water. This will remove any excess fat from the meat.)
Put meat back into the pan and mix in tomato paste, vinegar, stevia, and seasonings. Stir until all the paste is mixed in. If the mixture is too thick, add water or broth to thin the paste
Mix and serve on romaine leaves as your bun! Enjoy!
