Whole30 Sloppy Joe's

Hahaha, name that movie!
As requested, here is my Whole30 Sloppy Joe recipe (kid approved!)  This is a combination of a few recipes I found online and what I could create with what I had on hand!  It was sweet and spicy and would beat Manwich any day!  I served it over a baked potato and had shredded Brussel sprouts on the side and Dustin ended up just combining it all together!

So here it is!  (Disclaimer, I usually just eyeball instead of measuring and taste along the way so these are approximate measurements!)

  • 1 lb. ground meat (we use venison)
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes (many recipes called for green pepper in it too, but we didn't have any on hand!)
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • About 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • About 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Aminos
  • Big squeeze of Dijon Mustard (we use the Annie's brand)
  • 1/4 cup water to allow it to simmer
  • Heat either olive oil or coconut oil in a pan and begin to brown your burger
  • Add in all the ingredients in the order listed above and simmer about 10 minutes until your sloppy joe's thicken. 
It was a super easy Sunday night dinner!  Let me know if you give it a try!
