Paleo Style Sausage and Peppers

Growing up, my mom used to make tomato sauce with sausage, which gave it a nice flavor. Up until recently, I rarely did so, as we don’t eat pork too often.  That all changed when I discovered grass fed beef sausage! It’s truly delicious, healthy, and environmentally friendly as well.

Most people don’t think of sausage as a healthy meal option, but when it’s made with 100% grass fed beef by a farmer you trust, it certainly is. That’s why I say this recipe is Paleo style, because other than eating venison or other wild animal meat, grass fed beef is the closest you can get to eating like hunter gathers did before the age of agriculture and industrialized food.

Here’s the gluten free, grain free, Paleo recipe:

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Paleo Style Sausage and Peppers

Grass Fed Beef Sausage and Peppers from Gluten Free, SCD/GAPS/Paleo/Low Carb friendly.


  • 2 lbs grass fed beef Kielbasa
  • 3 fresh peppers, red, orange, green (your choice, mix 'em up!), sliced
  • 1 large or 2 small red onions, chopped
  • 3 to 4 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
  • 3 T coconut oil


  1. In large frying pan, heat coconut oil.
  2. Slice sausage into 1 inch chunks, and add to frying pan. Stir occasionally, until lightly browned. To cook through faster, you can cover, if you like, but since as long as you're using 100% grass fed beef, you don't have to worry if a little pink remains in the sausage.
  3. Remove sausage from pan and place in large bowl.
  4. Put onions in frying pan (with beef fat) and saute for 2 minutes before adding peppers, garlic and sea salt. Saute for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Add sausage and combine.
  6. Serve warm.

Food for thought:

If using pork sausage, cut through a piece to make sure cooked through.

Peppers belong to a plant family called "nightshades," along with white potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and some spices. They might be irritating to anyone with joint pain or arthritis. If you're avoiding them, you can sub in squash or mushrooms (I like a Shitake/Cremini combo) instead.

Imagine if we ate all the colors of the fireworks every day, or just for that one day. This recipe will get you off to a good start, but if you add strawberries and blueberries for dessert, you’ll not only be healthy, but patriotic too.

Here’s to your freedom, happiness, and health!
