KETO SLOPPY JOE

Sloppy Joe’s are a classic dinner staple that can be ready in under 30 minutes and store well in the fridge!

We like to put a little kick of jalapeno in our recipe as well as a little extra chili pepper.

Make sure to use your favorite low carb marinara or tomato sauce and a sugar substitute you have on hand.

We used SukrinGold, a “brown sugar” erythritol to help give our sloppy joe that traditional flavor; any sugar substitute will work here though!

To give the sloppy’s their texture without adding any cornstarch or flour, make sure to cook it uncovered until a lot of the moisture has cooked off and you’re left with a nice, thick and sticky result!

Note: if you’re serving these on Oopsie Rolls, dig in right away so the rolls don’t become soggy.

Enjoy!

Method

Steps:

  • 1Start off by heating up a large pan with a tablespoon of olive oil.
  • 2Add your onion and garlic to the pan and cook until fragrant. If you’re using fresh jalapeno, add those in to cook as well. If you prefer or only have pickled jalapenos, add them in last to retain flavor!
  • 3Once your veggies are cooked down a bit, add in your ground beef and break it up in the pan.
  • 4After the meat is nice and brown, stir in your marinara sauce, mustard, soy sauce, vinegar and sriracha and lower the heat to simmer.
  • 5Add in your sugar substitute and your seasoning and stir it all in.
  • 6Let this simmer, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until a lot of the liquid has evaporated and everything has become thick and sticky. Add in pickled jalapeno right before serving.
  • 7When you’re ready to serve, spoon some of the Sloppy Joe onto an Oopsie roll, low carb wrap, a leaf of lettuce or right into a bowl! Enjoy!

  1. This is my “go to” for a simple dinner. My husband is diabetic and the pre made mix is HIGH in carbs! Everyone LOVES the flavor of this, even my nephew who despises store bought mix! It is SOOOO yummy! Thank you for this recipe❤️

  2. I have been looking for a low carb bbq sauce. None found so far. I liked this recipe so much that I decided to try making the sauce and putting it on ribs. Anyone try it ?

  3. Thrive Market coconut aminos seasoning sauce is an amazing substitute for the brown sugar.
    I used two tablespoons to offset both the brown sugar and the soya sauce. The recipe turned out amazing! 5/5 times! Today, I used one tsp,of regular soya sauce and I tsp of the Thrive coconut aminos.
    Still Tastes awesome 👌🏼! This is the best keto recipe that both my husband I LOVE!

  4. This is absolutely delicious. I doubled the recipe and used ground Turkey, to be a tad healthier, and it turned out awesome. Thank you so much for the recipe!

  5. This was amazing. Put it on my Keto bread. I didn’t have swerve brown sugar so I used swerve powdered and some molasses. This will be a staple for some weekly dinners. Thank you.

  6. I printed the recipe a long time ago with NO pecans and now it says to add pecans! Why? It doesn’t need pecans.

    1. Hi Kathy, I’m not sure why the pecans were missing from your printed recipe. I’m happy to hear that the Sloppy Joes are delicious without them though! Happy cooking 😊

      1. I printed my copy 3-4-16, no pecans. The new one is a bit out of order but all other ingredients are the same. Strange.
