Have you tried cooking an inexpensive steak such as top sirloin and found it had a weird texture or a taste that reminded you of liver? Let us show you how to cook inexpensive cuts of beef in a way that tastes great.


Let's Have Fajitas!

Use low-carb tortillas, or just eat with a fork -- and don't forget the guacamole!

Fajitas are an easy meal to make, and who doesn't love this combination of Mexican flavors? Bring on the easy guacamole, salsa, sour cream, cilantro, and low-carb tortillas, and you have a complete meal – unless you really want to do it up and add some low-carb refried beans.


Easy Baby Back Ribs

 Succulent baby back ribs - they don't have to be hard to make, and they don't have to be loaded down with a super-sweet BBQ sauce. Instead, use my method and my Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce, and you're all set! And don't forget the coleslaw (sugar-free, of course!)

 This is a little like Dan Dan noodles. I use shirataki noodles, which have very little carb or calories and which I think go perfectly in an Asian noodle dish. It's made with ground pork.

Don't you love it when you can throw ingredients in a slow cooker, and have many meals? This is one of those recipes. It can be served in many ways - we like it over spaghetti squash since we don't eat rice, but cauliflower "rice" would be a great idea as well. My husband likes to eat them with low-carb tortillas.

Another crockpot meal, this time inspired by Eastern Europe. Whenever we have it, we say, " Wow, I forgot how good this is"! I like to serve it over sauteed cabbage strips - it's very quick to slice a cabbage and throw the strips into a skillet.

I love having recipes where I can throw leftover meats and vegetables into a pot and make something entirely different and delicious. This recipe is a great one for leftover beef roasts such as pot roast. You can really put any vegetables you want into it, although I have some suggestions.
