SIMMER ! NOT BOIL

Takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Just test for the leaves to be cooked. Carb count per leave minus the dietary fiber is .6 carbs. Pine nuts are only 4 carbs per 1/2 cup. So they are not even measureable unless you eat the whole pot LOL.

Meatloaf Serves:4 CarbsPerServing:7 Prep Time:30-min Effort:Average

Ingredients:

1-loaf pan 1-lb ground beef (or turkey or chicken) 1-med onion (chopped finely) 12-mushrooms (or around that; chopped finely, like onion/NOT sliced)) 3-5 cloves of garlic (or less, if you're a wimp! crushed/chopped finely ) 2-3 TBS chopped parlsey1-egg 1/2 cup chicken broth (or water) 1-cup bread crumbs (or substitute; I use Keto Crumbs but you could

also just use less broth and more mushrooms/onion) 1/2-cup olive oil (you can use more if you'd like) 1-tsp salt (or 1-TBS soy sauce) 1/2-tsp black pepper

How to Prepare: I make a wonderful meatloaf that can pass for a meatball-flavored meal. You can slice it up and serve it with brown gravy and vegetables or top with melted mozzarella and marinara sauce or break it up into pieces and make into a beef stroganoff or however else you feel like being creative...It's a great thing to have around for lunches or dinners. You can even freeze slices and have whenever you feel like it. BTW-I think this is the best meatloaf I've ever had, not like the traditional at all.

First, pre-heat oven for 375-degrees. Next, saute all the mushrooms, onion, garlic, and parsley in a pan with the olive oil. Don't let it burn (garlic tastes yucky when burnt). When the onions are soft, remove from heat to let cool down. In a large bowl, add meat, egg, bread crumbs (or substitute), chicken broth (or water), salt (or soy sauce), and pepper. When the sauteed mixture has cooled enough, add it to the bowl and mix all ingredients (with very clean hands or proper mixer) until everything is well-combined. Now, put mixture into loaf pan (NO need to oil/grease pan as there is plenty of fat already in the mixture from the olive oil). Put into the oven and bake for 45-minutes. Voila! Now, you have a delicious, low-carb meatloaf (that tastes sort of like a meatball) that you can serve up all sorts of ways. Slice loaf into ten slices. There are about 3-gm of carbs per each slice (or 30-gm carbs/loaf). Enjoy!

Steak with Pate and Cheese Serves:2 CarbsPerServing:2-4 (depending on pate and cheese) Prep Time:15 mins Effort:Easy Ingredients: 2 x thinly sliced Beefsteak

1-2oz Ardennes or Brussels pateThinly-sliced Cheddar or other mild cheese

How to Prepare: Fry the steak until it's cooked as much as you want (I prefer well done) then remove from pan, spread a thin layer of pate over the cooked steak and top with cheese. Place under the grill until cheese bubbles. Yum. You can also fry some onion with the steak and put it between the pate and the cheese.
