Well, we did, and it is an amazing Sloppy Joe Potatoes Recipe by Allyson Meyler. Thank you Allyson for this unique and tasty new recipe to try. We can’t wait to stuff potatoes with this combination.
I put a little twist on a messy classic with these Sloppy Joe Potatoes. Grass-fed ground beef strikes again. All I can say is that it’s a staple in my house, and it’s kind of amazing in these sloppy joes. We’re not stepping anywhere near a can of Manwich.
These sloppy joes are surprisingly easy to make from scratch!
Sloppy Joe Potatoes Recipe
Recipe By: Allyson Meyler, Reclaiming Yesterday
Paleo and Whole30
USWM Shopping List: Ground Beef
- 1 pound grass-fed ground beef
- ½ of a yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1 small can organic tomato paste (6 ounces, or 170 grams)
- About 1 and ½ cups chicken broth
- ½ tablespoon yellow mustard
- ¼ cup Coconut Aminos
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ tablespoon arrowroot starch*
- ¼ cup water
- Olive oil
- 4 russet potatoes, baked or microwaved
- Pickles or pickled jalapenos
- Bake for 45 minutes in a 425 degree oven, or microwave for 5-7 minutes, until tender.
- Brown the ground beef in a pan over medium high heat. Once browned, add a dash of salt and transfer to another dish and reserve.
- To the same pan, add olive oil, chopped onions, and a dash of salt. Sauté for 3- 4 minutes. Add chopped red bell pepper and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
- Add tomato paste, 1 cup of the chicken broth, yellow mustard, Coconut Aminos, garlic powder, and chili powder. Stir to combine and allow to cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring regularly.
- After the sauce has reduced slightly, add the cooked ground beef and stir to combine. Cook on low for another 5 minutes, tasting and adjusting seasoning as needed.
- Add the arrowroot starch to a small dish with about ¼ cup of water and stir to form a slurry. Add the mixture to the Sloppy Joes along with an additional ¼ cup – ½ cup of chicken broth. Cook for another 2 minutes or so until sauce is thick and glistening.
- Top each potato with the Sloppy Joe mixture and serve with coleslaw, chives, pickles, pickled jalapenos, etc. Enjoy!
* Arrowroot starch is an alternative to cornstarch. You can sub cornstarch, if you prefer, or leave it out entirely. It helps the sauce thicken, but the recipe will still be delicious without it.
These sloppy joes are great as leftovers throughout the week!
