This recipe is based off one of my favorite dinners growing up that my mom would make. She called it “Slop” and it consisted of egg noodles, ground beef, American cheese, onions, peppers, and brown gravy from a jar. I wanted to make a healthier version of one of my childhood favorites that I had been missing. I replaced the egg noodles with Cappello’s fettuccine (you can also use paleocupboard.com’s pasta recipe) and the American cheese with grass-fed gouda cheese. Instead of using brown gravy from a jar, I made my sauce with bacon fat, tapioca flour, and beef broth. This is perfect for when you want some comfort food. It is delicious and satisfying and doesn’t leave you feeling guilty after!
