This took a little bit longer to make all of the different parts but it was nice because I already the sauce made and the buns don’t have to cook very long.I served the sloppy joes with roasted sweet potato fries.
This is a great recipe for the summer time! It doesn’t get better than a “gooey messy burger”. The sweet potato fries were great. I also might eat our zucchini chips with this recipe or a simple fruit or vegetable on the side to supplement the sloppy joe.
This homemade sloppy joe sauce tastes so much better than the canned stuff and it's easy to make. I like to blend up the onion and pepper so my kids don't know they are in there, but you still get the flavor from them.
- 2 pounds Ground Beef
- 12 ounces Hickory Smoked Bacon sliced into 1/2" pieces
- 1 Yellow Onion diced
- 1 Green Bell Pepper diced
- Paleo BBQ Sauce
- Paleo Buns to serve
In a large skillet, brown and crumble the ground beef. Add the beef to a slow cooker.
Add the diced bacon to the same pan the beef was cooked in(no need to wash) and cook until it is just starting to brown.
Add the onion and green pepper to the bacon and saute until the bacon is fully cooked, and the onion and pepper are soft and translucent. Add the bacon, onion, and pepper to the slow cooker.
Add the Paleo BBQ sauce ingredients to the slow cooker, stir well, and heat on low for 2 hours.
Serve on My Paleo Hamburger Buns Recipe.
