3tbscoconut sugar or zero calorie sweetenerSwerve or Lakanto sweetener
36 oz cans tomato paste
2tbsApple cider vinegar
Chop onion, celery, and carrots into quarters. Remove core and seeds from peppers. Chop into large pieces. Place vegetables into food processor* and process until finely chopped.Heat oil in large pan. Add veggie mixture and sauté for about 5-8 minutes.Rinse food processor container, and add chicken livers. Process for about 30 seconds until relatively smooth. It will look like a reddish slurry (yep, a little gross now, but it will be fine, trust me!). Add liver and ground beef to veggies and cook until meat is no longer pink. Add salt, pepper, garlic, sweetener, tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, and water. Stir to combine. Simmer 10–20 minutes. If your sloppy Joes are too thick, add more water, if they are too runny, simmer uncovered for a few minutes until some liquid has cooked off. Add additional salt if needed. Serve on buns, sweet potato pancake/buns, a baked sweet potato. For paleo, try these sweet potato pancakes that make great buns. Or bake a potato or sweet potato and top with the sloppy joe mixture.Enjoy!
*I highly recommend using a food processor for this recipe! It saves a lot of time and energy. I like this one. If you don't have one, you can use a cheese grater to shred the veggies, and a blender to puree the livers.If you have purple carrots, use them! The purple color blends into the color of the meat, making them less noticeable.Chicken livers have a milder flavor, but beef liver works great too!
