Paleo (almost) Sloppy Joes

These I totally made up and they were so yummy, I used the biscuits below but it's good just with a spoon too! Also the reason they are only ALMOST paleo is because I used gluten free worcestershire sauce which had cane juice in it so there is some sugar. but it's super minimal so don't even worry. I used "the Wizards" worcestershire sauce that I found at Whole Foods :) 

1 lb. Organic Grass Fed Ground Beef 
1 Red Bell Pepper (orange or yellow would work but red is best) 
1 Yellow Onion
pinch of salt
1 Tbsp. Grade B Maple syrup
1 Tbsp. or so of Gluten Free Worcestershire sauce
1/4 Red Wine Vinegar
2 Cloves Garlic
2 tsp. Paprika
2 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 can Organic Tomato Sauce
1/4 Cup Tomato Paste
1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Heat the olive oil in a sautee pan and add the mined red pepper, garlic and onion and sautee until soft. When they are starting to soften add the ground beef and brown it. Add the vinegar, worcestershire and maple syrup stir and bring to a boil cook off some of the liquid and add the paprika, garlic powder and tomato paste, stir again and add the can of tomato sauce. Simmer on the stove 30-40 minutes and serve with or without a biscuit, my kids each ate two sloppy joes with a biscuit and LOVED it, messy faces and all!
