Paleo Sloppy Joe, It’s Whole30 too!

My preferred method of cooking is throw things together and hope that it works, now that I’ve started sharing my recipes I really have to take the time to quantify each ingredient so I can write an actual recipe.  This bad boy came about after a late Barre3 class where I didn’t get home until 7:30 and Greg was on his way to baseball practice (he’s a high school coach).  It’s Paleo, Whole30, toddler (and husband) approved and finished in under 30 minutes. Serve with a vegetable or salad and it’s the perfect quick comfort food, with no guilt!


Paleo Sloppy Joe


  • 1 lb of Ground Beef
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, Minced.
  • 1/2 a Small onion, diced.
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Mustard Powder
  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Aminos
  • 1/4 tsp. Fish Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. New Primal BBQ Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Tessamaes Ketchup
  • 8 oz Can of Compliant Tomato Sauce
  • Generous Pinch of Salt and Pepper


Wash and scrub sweet potatoes, pierce with a fork and pop them in the microwave on the potato setting.

    1. Dice onion and mince garlic.
    2. Mix together, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
    3. Add 2 TBSP of olive oil to sauté pan and turn stove to medium.  Add garlic and onion and sauté until fragrant and softened.
    4. After onions and garlic are soft and fragrant, add ground beef and brown.
    5. Drain ground beef and return heat to medium and add dry spices.
    6. After incorporating all dry spices, add tomato sauce, fish sauce, coconut aminos, New Primal BBQ sauce and Tessamaes Ketchup.        


Serve over a baked or microwaved (lol) sweet potato with a side of broccoli and a dollop of “Mac’s Awesome Sauce” from Healthy Little Peach!

Please note: this recipe’s ingredients are somewhat costly upfront, I used them because I had them on hand already, as pantry staples. Adjust to taste and affordability, (i.e. use regular ketchup and bbq sauce if not on a round of whole30), I’m positive your recipe will be amazing too!
