Sloppy Joes (GAPS and Paleo friendly)

Sloppy Joe's are a kid favorite at my house.  I have to admit that I grew up eating Manwich Sloppy Joe Sauce and served it to my own kids.  What's wrong with Manwich, right? Unfortunately, it is not GAPS legal for a couple of reasons.  First, it contains high fructose corn syrup.  Second, it is sold in a BPA lined can. 

So what's a mom to do?  Find a recipe and make it herself.

Here's the basic recipe that I use:
GAPS Legal Sloppy Joes

My kids love this!  Although the first time that I made it, they picked around the peppers.  The next time I made it I made the sauce separate from the ground beef so that I could puree it before adding it to the beef.  Worked like a charm!  I saute the onions, peppers, and garlic with ghee in a skillet.  Then I mix this mixture along with the other ingredients for the sauce into a food processor to puree it.  Then I just brown my ground beef in the same pan and stir in the add the sauce once the meat is cooked thoroughly.  No more chunks and kid approved!  I typically serve this with these Coconut Flour Biscuits or Paleo Sandwich Rounds and a green vegetable.  In order to avoid BPA, I made this recipe with Bionature Strained Tomatoes which is sold in a glass jar.
