  • 1 tbsp EVOO
  • 1 lb natural antibiotic-free ground turkey
  • 2 tbsp organic brown sugar
  • 2 tsp GF steak seasoning
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 organic red bell pepper, chopped
  • 3/4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 tbsp GF Worcestershire sauce (like Lea & Perrins)
  • 1 cup organic tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1 tbsp organic tomato paste
  • 2 GF hamburger buns or sandwich rolls


  1. Heat a skillet over medium high heat and add the oil and ground turkey and cook for a few minutes, about 5 minutes. Drain off any fat if necessary.

  2. Mix the steak seasoning, brown sugar, and onion powder together. Add the spices to the ground turkey meat in the skillet and cook until browned, about 2-3 minutes.

  3. Add the chopped red bell pepper. Cook down the mixture until the veggies are tender, about 8 minutes.

  4. Add the red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Add the tomato sauce to the skillet. Rinse the container or measuring cup with the water and add to the meat. Add the tomato paste. Simmer over medium low heat for 10 minutes longer.

  5. Toast the hamburger buns or sandwich rolls in the oven. When ready, cut in half and scoop the Sloppy Joe mixture onto the buns. Enjoy!
