Keto Sloppy Joes

sloppy joe on keto bun on black plate.

These keto sloppy joes have that sweet and tangy flavor that a good sloppy joe is known for. I kept the base recipe very similar to the one I've made for my kids, but swapped in sweetener for brown sugar and used sugar free ketchup in place of regular. The results taste just like the classic, but without all the unneeded sugar.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add the ground beef, pepper, and onion to a large skillet over medium heat. Break the meat up as it cooks. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
  2. Once fully browned, drain the grease from the skillet. 
  3. While the beef is cooking, add the ketchup, sweetener, mustard, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper to a small bowl and whisk well to combine. 
  4. Pour the sauce over the cooked beef and stir well to combine. Continue cooking for 10 minutes over low heat.
  5. Serve hot as a sandwich using low carb buns or chaffles

Notes

We used Heinz No Sugar Added Ketchup. ¾ of a cup has 12g carbs. If you’re using a different ketchup, your nutrition info will vary accordingly.

We use Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener in this recipe. Any brown sugar replacement that measures 1:1 should work well, but we love Lakanto. Use code THATLOWCARBLIFE for 20% off your order at Lakanto.com.
