Sloppy Joes- Paleo & Whole30

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, or oil of choice
  • 1 red pepper, or yellow/orange
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pound grass-fed ground beef
  • 3/4 cup paleo ketchup
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste


  • Place the coconut oil in a large skillet.
  • Dice up the red pepper and onion and saut√© in the coconut oil over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, until they start to soften and onions start to become translucent.
  • Sprinkle with salt and garlic powder and stir in.
  • Add the beef and break it up with a spatula. Cook until browned.
  • Add ketchup, coconut aminos, and tomato paste and stir to combine.
  • Let cook on low for at least 10 minutes. The longer it cooks the more the flavors will develop. I like to simmer it for 30-40 minutes.
  • Serve over zucchini noodles, a sweet potato, or just eat it out of a bowl!


*For low fodmap version, use 1 cup low fodmap ketchup, leave out the onion and replace it with another bell pepper (not green). Replace the garlic powder with 1 tablespoon garlic oil. Leave out the tomato paste.
