Keto Sloppy Joe Skillet Recipe
I’ve loved a good sloppy joe back as long as I can remember. Since we started following a keto lifestyle, it’s one meal that I’ve missed, so I decided to create a keto friendly version. Instantly, this Keto Sloppy Joe Skillet recipe became a hit at our house. It’s simple, it’s sloppy and its’fun to eat. You don’t “feel” like you’re missing out on any great flavors or taste because this recipe is just that good. If the rest of your family isn’t eating low carb, you can serve theirs on regular buns while you enjoy yours as is or on 90- Second Bread. I love the simplicity of low carb Sloppy Joe Skillet and my family loves the taste.
I don’t spend a lot of time meal prepping, but one thing I do as often as possible is brown extra ground beef at once and store it in the freezer divided into freezer safe containers. It makes so much sense to brown extra since I’m already browning ground beef anyway. Then, the next time I need it, I grab a container out of the fridge and can have dinner on the table in a snap. You can find this tip and a couple of others in 5 easy meal prep ideas.
Once your ground beef is browned, dump all of the ingredients in a skillet and stir to combine. Before you know it, you’ll have an amazing dinner that tastes incredible.
One other thing to point out about this easy sloppy joe recipe is that it’s perfect for any level of keto cooking. You can make it with ease for any type of meal and feel confident.
Are there substitutes for Monkfruit Golden and Bragg’s Aminos?
Yes, you can sub Swerve Brown for Monkfruit Golden. Both are sugar-free brown sugar substitutes. Bragg’s Aminos is a healthier alternative to soy sauce. If you are avoiding soy, Coconut Aminos is a perfect sub.
Bringing the Low Carb Sloppy Joe Skillet to a boil then simmering helps all of the flavors to infuse into the ground beef. Once you remove the lid, continue to simmer until the mixture reduces and thickens.
How can you store your leftover Low Carb Sloppy Joe?
Place any leftovers that you may have in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 3 days. If you can’t consume by that point in time, freeze this for later in a freezer-safe container. Freezer foods are typically good for up to 6 months from the freezing date.
I used Mozzarella cheese on top, but you use any variety that you wish. I always grate my cheese by hand to avoid the added ingredients in preshredded cheese.
How to Serve Keto Sloppy Joe Skillet
The choice is up to you! Some people prefer to eat it as is, on a bed of lettuce, or as a sandwich on 90-Second Bread. Whatever you’re craving, give it a go. Serving Keto Sloppy Joe Skillet on 90-Second Bread made it feel like comfort food we used to eat. If you haven’t made 90-Second Bread, it is super easy. Make sure you toast it or fry it in butter to get more of a bun texture. You’ll find the recipe here.
Yum! I was so happy with how this Keto Sloppy Joe turned out! It was hearty, filling, and full of amazing bold flavor. We served a leafy garden salad to go with it for a complete and delicious low carb meal.
