  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 (8 oz) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon spicy mustard (you can use regular deli mustard if you prefer)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • about ½ cup prepared and ready to eat rice per person
  • chopped green onions to garnish


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown up your ground beef in a drizzle of EVOO until it’s crumbly.  Stir in a nice pinch of both salt and pepper along with your garlic powder.
  2. Next, stir in your tomato sauce, spicy mustard, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.  Bring everything up to a simmer and let it hang out about five minutes.
  3. After your mixture has simmered, time to build your bowl.  Take your rice and add it to a bowl along with a scoop of Sloppy Joe mixture and then garnish with a bit of chopped green onion.
  4. Enjoy!


Make sure you check your Worchestershire sauce for gluten if you’re eating g-free.
