Pineapple Ground Meat

This is a paleo-friendly recipe that I constructed a month or so ago.  I've made it with beef and with turkey.  Both are excellent, but I prefer beef.  I realize that using the term "ground meat" isn't as appetizing as "beef" or "turkey" or "pork" or whatever, but the point I really want to emphasize is that this is good with just about any ground meat...you could probably put salmon through a meat grinder and it would work with this too.

Pineapple Ground Meat

1 lb Ground Meat - Use what you have or what you like
8-12oz Pineapple Tidbits or fresh Pineapple, diced up
2 TBSP Raw Honey
2 TBSP Bragg's Aminos
1 tsp Ginger
1/2 Onion, diced
1 tsp Parsley
1/4 cup Green Onions, diced (optional)
1 Orange, Lemon, Lime, or Other Citrus Fruit
Sesame Seeds


  1. In a large frying pan, start browning your meat.
  2. While your meat is cooking, make sure your onion is diced up.  If you're using fresh pineapple, make sure that is chopped into tidbits.
  3. Once your meat is fully cooked, turn the heat to medium.  Add in the onion.  Let this cook for about a minute and a half, until it starts getting soft.
  4. Add in your pineapple, raw honey, Bragg's aminos, ginger, and parsley.  Stir gently to spread everything around in the pan.  If you choose to add in green onions, add in at this time.
  5. Take your 1 piece of citrus fruit, cut it in half, and squeeze out the juice.  I generally do this into a bowl so it's easy to remove any seeds that might fall out.  Once you have the juice from 1 piece of citrus fruit, add this to your meat.
  6. Let this simmer until most of the liquid has cooked down.  You may have to reduce the heat.  This should take a few minutes.
  7. When you serve it, top with a pinch of sesame seeds.
Serving suggestions (choose one or two of these): Steamed broccoli, tempura-battered cauliflower, mashed cauliflower, miracle noodles, shredded cabbage, or coleslaw.

NOTE: On the off chance that you happen to have a meat grinder and try grinding up fish, you will need to have your stuff ready to go since fish cooks faster than land animal meat.  Just be ready for that.  Good luck with your ground fish!
