Sloppy Joes

If you read our post last week, you’ll know that we went to Wisconsin to visit my parents for the Fourth of July holiday. Two of my sisters and their families and one of my Aunts gathered with us at my parents’ home. One of the many meals my parents made was Sloppy Joes. It took me back to my childhood. So, of course, the first thing I wanted to do upon getting home was create a version that’s a bit cleaner. It’s a simple recipe, but we think it packs in a lot of good flavor. We hope it helps you reminisce about your childhood with a smile the way it did for us.

Ingredients
2 tsp avocado oil
1 lb ground beef
1 1/2 C dices onion
1 large clove garlic, pressed
1/2 C diced green bell pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp spicy brown mustard
1 15-oz can tomato sauce

Method

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high. Add the ground beef and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly to break up the meat. Remove the beef and set aside in a bowl.

Cook onion, bell pepper, and garlic in the remaining oil. Season with salt and chili powder. Cook for 2 minutes.

Add mustard and tomato sauce. Stir for 2 minutes.

Return the ground beef to the skillet. Simmer for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve in lettuce leaves or on your favorite gluten-free bun.
