Keto Sloppy Joes 

Keto Sloppy Joes are a low-carb twist on the classic comfort food dish. Instead of using traditional hamburger buns, this recipe uses a flavorful meat mixture served over lettuce or with low-carb bread or buns.

To make Keto Sloppy Joes, start by browning ground beef in a skillet over medium heat. Once the beef is cooked through, drain any excess fat and add diced onions and bell peppers to the skillet. Sauté until the vegetables are soft.

Next, add tomato sauce, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, and a blend of spices such as garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, and chili powder. Stir to combine and simmer the mixture for about 10-15 minutes, or until it thickens slightly.

To serve, spoon the meat mixture over a bed of lettuce or on low-carb bread or buns. You can also top it with shredded cheese, sliced avocado, or a dollop of sour cream for extra flavor.

Keto Sloppy Joes are a delicious and satisfying meal that is sure to become a family favorite. They’re easy to make and can be customized with your favorite low-carb toppings. Plus, they’re a great way to enjoy a classic comfort food dish while sticking to a keto diet.
