For Paleo, GAPs, SCD, and Cane/Refined Sugar Free: Use an alternative sweetener such as maple sugar, date sugar, or honey. Strict SCD prevents season blends. You’ll need to add seasonings one at a time. It also prevents canned tomato products. You’ll need to make that fresh.

As you can see, the ingredients are grouped together in a certain fashion, which will be explained shortly. I also suggest you cook this in a pot. Before I continue, I have to tell you that these ARE AMAZING!! It’s like a party in your mouth.
With the stove heat set to medium high heat the oil. When it starts to shimmer, add the meat. I have found that grass fed lamb is the only meat that doesn’t give me any issues. It has a lot to do with how the meat is processed. Some folks like me can have allergic reactions to the diet of the animal, or the processing such as the washes used.
As the meat cooks, break it into small chunks. Add the first grouping of seasoning. Let the meat brown, and drain it when it’s done cooking. Place the meat back into the pot and add the tomato sauce and paste. Reduce the heat to low. Next, add in the second group of seasonings. Mix it well, and let it simmer on low for at least 15 minutes.
This comes together very quickly. It goes well with salad, regular or sweet potato fries, and that wonderful waffle bread.
PS: This stores great in the fridge, and it’s good hot or cold, even for breakfast. I sacrificed myself to make sure it was a good breakfast food so I could report in.
