Sloppy Joes are a classic dish that will never grow old. To make these keto sloppy Joes, we browned ground beef. Then we combined it with seasoning, aromatic vegetables, red wine vinegar, tomato paste and sauce, yellow mustard, and a little sugar-free sweetener and simmered it until it was perfect. 

Serve these sloppy Joes on keto burger buns and keto mozzarella sticks, and you have a tasty meal.
