Introduction: Paleo Goddess Sloppy Joe

About: Feast or Famine I Always Say, Enjoy Your Food The Paleo Way!

PLEASE NOTE: I forgot to say cook beef before adding to baked sweet potatoes. But... you already knew that, right lol? ?

So just so we are clear, mix together, cook, then place on sweet potatoes.

In hindsight, I should have titled this dish Sloppy Trader Joes since all the ingredients in this video are from there. I mean, it seems like a much more fitting name, but oh well, regardless-enjoy!



4 pre-baked sweet potatoes or yams

1 1/2 lbs of grass-fed ground beef

1/2 onion, chopped small

1/2 organic green pepper, chopped small

1/2 organic red pepper, chopped small

1 clove of garlic, minced1 tbs of chili powder

1 tsp of cumin

2 1/2 T raw honey

(1) 14 oz can of diced tomatoes (I used the Trader Joe's canned organic diced tomatoes with green chilies)

(1) 6 oz can of organic tomato paste

1/2 tablespoon sea salt, add more to taste if needed. ?????????


* Sauté the onions, garlic together in a skillet until onions are tender

* Add and brown the ground beef in the same skillet

* Next add the spices, honey, and bell peppers to the skillet

* Pour in the can of diced tomatoes with liquids and the tomato paste

* Simmer all together on low for about 15 minutes

* Finish with salt and pepper to taste

* Cut sweet potatoes in half and scoop out a portion to form a little bowl and fill with sloppy joe mixture -or- slice up each sweet potato into wedges and pour sloppy joe mixture over

Serve hot on a baked sweet potato for a grain free alternative, and enjoy!
