These were sooooo good! Especially if you are craving some comfort food. It may seem super weird to put sloppy joe meat over zoodles, but I promise you it's a perfect match. Now hubby does not eat zoodles, so I put his on a whole wheat bun. Regardless, its delish both ways. Plus you aren't getting all those weird ingredients like you would with the stuff from the can.
Sloppy Joe Bowls
adapted from Jay's Baking Me Crazy
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
2 lbs lean ground beef (grass-fed if Whole30 or Paleo)
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1.5 tsp onion powder
2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup coconut aminos
1.5 cups homemade ketchup
2 TBS tomato paste
Before you get started, make up your homemade ketchup!
Put your ground beef in a medium sized dutch oven over medium-high heat. (I love my Le Creuset!) Once the meat is mostly browned, toss in your garlic and turn the heat down to medium. Toss in the onion powder, salt and pepper. Cook for about 1-2 more minutes. Add coconut aminos, ketchup and tomato paste. Stir to combine and turn the heat to low. Allow the mixture to simmer for 20 minutes.
While your sloppy joe meat is simmering, make up your zoodles. I use a Paderno vegetable spiralizer to make my zoodles. It's amazing. It has several different blades. I've used it on other veggies too, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes and parsnips.
Once your zoodles are ready, top them with the sloppy joe meat and eat!
