With a busy weekend, finding a recipe as easy as this one was a huge win for my meal prep Monday. Plus, I had an extra bottle of Tessemae’s BBQ sauce that I bought from Whole Foods for this exact occasion. The Whole Foods by me also started to sell Steve’s PaleoChef Peach BBQ again, so I will have to stock up on that for the next time I need a simple and quick BBQ recipe. I doubled the meat on this and also roasted three large sweet potatoes for about an hour and a half to complete the meal. Not much to say about this recipe other then it turned out delicious, as expected, and was super easy, simple, and quick (despite the sweet potatoes roasting in the oven, but you can at least do other things while waiting on those). Anything with BBQ sauce, bacon, or sweet potato is amazing in my book!

Paleo Barbecue Beef and Bacon

6 slices bacon (nitrate free)

1 large onion

1 pound grass-fed beef (I doubled this)

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup Paleo Barbecue Sauce (I used one bottle of Tessemae’s BBQ sauce – Paleo, Dairy Free and Gluten Free, and Whole 30 approved)

⅓ cup coconut aminos


Cut bacon into small pieces. I find that scissors work best for this.

Place in a cold frying pan and cook until crispy.

Scoop out all bacon pieces and set on a plate, leaving all the bacon grease in the pan.

Cook the onion in the grease until it starts to soften- about 5 minutes.

Add the beef and salt and cook until browned.

Add the barbecue sauce and coconut aminos and stir until warmed through.

Stir in the bacon right before serving.

Serve over a baked potato and top with additional bacon and green onions if desired.
