Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

Oh how I've missed Sloppy Joe's!  One of my favorites as a kid.  Although mine were not as good.  Sloppy Joe sauce from a can with some ground beef.  This was really good and even better as left overs, over a baked sweet potato.  

Most of the time I will recommend grass fed or organic ingredients but remember that if you have conventional ingredients that will work too.


4 Bell Peppers 
2 Tbs. Grass Fed Butter (I prefer Kerrygold)
1 1/2 lb. Grass Fed Ground Beef
3 oz. Onion – Chopped
2 oz. Carrots – Chopped
1 Celery Stalk – Chopped
3 Large Cloves Garlic – Minced
8 oz. Can Diced Tomatoes w/ Green Chiles
1/3 Cup Organic Beef or Chicken Broth
1/4 Cup Paleo Ketchup or Ketchup
2 Tbs. Tomato Paste
1 Tbs. Paleo Worcestershire (homemade) or Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. Yellow Mustard
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Salt 

Preheat oven to 350°

Rinse bell peppers, cut off tops and remove stems and seeds from inside.  Lightly grease a baking sheet with butter.  Sprinkle peppers with salt and pepper.  Bake 35 minutes on middle rack.

In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add ground beef, onion, carrots, celery, and garlic.  Cook until ground beef is cooked through – About 10 minutes.

Drain excess grease from pan.
To meat mixture, add diced tomatoes, broth, ketchup, tomato paste, Worcestershire, mustard, chili powder, cumin, and salt.  Mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.  Reduce heat to low and simmer 5-10 minutes.

After 35 minutes, remove bell peppers from oven. Stuff with sloppy joe mixture, SERVE AND ENJOY!
