Ingredients
  

  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 2 small carrots finely chopped
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 cups paleo ketchup
  • 2 tbsp paleo spicy mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Poke the sweet potatoes with a fork and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 50 minutes or until soft. Remove from the oven and let cool. Cut in half.
  • Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions with a pinch of salt and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until soft. Stir in the carrots and cook for another 2 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, stirring regularly.
  • Add the ketchup, mustard, honey, vinegar, and water to the pan. Bring to a low simmer, then cover and cook for 12-15 minutes until the liquid is mostly absorbed. Adjust salt and pepper to taste, and add more ketchup or mustard as necessary. Spoon over the sweet potato halves to serve.
