Ingredients for Gluten Free Sloppy Joe Sauce Recipe

Serves 4

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (14-ounce) can tomato sauce

  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free Dijon mustard

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the ground beef, crumbling as you cook, until it is browned, about five minutes.
  2. Remove the ground beef from the fat in the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the onions and green peppers and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about five minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.

Serving Suggestions

Your grocer's freezer likely has a selection of gluten-free hamburger buns you can use. Alternatively, you can put the sloppy Joe mix in a lettuce cup or serve it in a bowl topped with a cabbage slaw.
