Italian steak and oven fried zucchini.

Italian Steak

12-16 oz lean steak
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp each, salt and pepper
Minced garlic to taste (I used 1 tsp)
1/2 can of tomato sauce (I used Bella Vita)
1 tbsp Italian dressing


Directions

Cut steak into strips, heat olive oil in a skillet. Combine garlic, salt and pepper. Place steak in skillet and pour sauce and Italian dressing over steak and sprinkle dry ingredients over the top. Mix it all together and cover, cook until steak is done as desired.

Baked zucchini

Large zucchini
2 tbsp mayo
3 tbsp Parmesan cheese
Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 450 and spray cookie sheet or line with parchment.

Slice zucchini into 1/4" slices. Combine Parmesan and Italian seasoning. Brush zucchini slices with mayo and coat with Parmesan/Italian dressing mix. Lay slices in a single layer on the sheet pan. Bake for 10 minutes, turn slices over and bake another 5-10 minutes until browned.

The steak gets really tender after braising in the sauce, so this would be good for tougher cuts of meat. I do the same thing with eggplant, and make eggplant Parmesan, using the Parmesan and Italian seasoning for a breading.

Thanks Esther! I'm not that good at taking pics, and I don't have very pretty dinnerware but I'm thinking about getting a new set, just can't find the one I want. LOL

Hey Gina. Just an idea for ya. I always hit the dishware area of my local Dollar Store, Big Lots, Marshalls, Walmart or Ross and buy single plates, bowls or saucers for photos. I set a limit of $1-2 per piece and have about 10-15 pieces that were bought exclusively for taking pics for my website. I decided that was a whole lot cheaper than buying a new set of dishes. Of course, if you just want a new set of dishes......... (I suffer from that disorder so I can relate). I've always just loved china. Just can't explain my affliction. So telling my husband "I need a new dish for website pics, honey," has appeased his dismay with my love of china and such.

Great idea Peggy!! I actually did think about just buying a few different pieces for picture taking. I have been wanting a new dish set for everyday use also. I just can't seem to find what I'm looking for anywhere. I'm just going to keep looking until I find it! Thanks fit the suggestion Peggy.

Tonight dinner was delicious. Beef and Broccoli and Cheese Rounds. The beef and broccoli recipe is from mr food. The cheese rounds can be found right here.

Instead of cornstarch I used glucommanan and instead of sugar I used a couple of drops of liquid Splenda. It's the best one ive ever made!


Beef and Broccoli

In a short amount of time, you'll have a whole meal on the table. Grab the family and you can all enjoy this home-cooked quick beef with broccoli dinner together.
Serves: 2
Cooking Time: 10 min
What You'll Need:

1/2 pound flank steak or boneless top round, trimmed
10 sun-dried tomato slices or halves (packed without oil)
3/4 cup boiling water
2 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
Cooking spray
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
3 scallions, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
Warm cooked rice
What To Do:

Slice steak diagonally across grain into very thin slices.

Combine tomato slices and boiling water; let stand 5 minutes. Drain and slice tomatoes into thin strips, reserving liquid.

Combine cornstarch, soy sauce, sugar, and reserved tomato liquid, stirring until smooth. Set aside.

Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add steak and cool, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Remove from skillet, and set aside. Add broccoli; cover and cook 3 minutes. Add tomato strips, scallions, and garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Add cornstarch mixture and steak; cook, stirring constantly 1 minute. Serve over rice.

Notes

A thawed 10-ounce package of frozen broccoli florets can also be used in place of fresh broccoli. Add it with the tomatoes, scallions, and garlic; cook, uncovered, 3 minutes, stirring constantly.

Ginaaa, it looks good! Hmmm, yummy , with that soy sauce... I use Guar Gum instead of Glucommanan. It works really well too. Where do you get sun dried tomatoes?

Individual Cherry Cake


I just made this tonight using Ouizoid's Fantastic Flour Mix. The "recipe", is posted in Post #535 of this discussion on her flour mix:
http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...ur-mix-18.html
I'll be making this little cake with all sorts of fruit toppings: blueberry and pineapple upside down come to mind next for this.

I can't do the numbers right now. Sorry. I no longer have the can the S/F cherry pie filling was in. I think the brand was Lucky Leaf, but I just can't remember. It was leftover from a dessert I made for DH last week.

I saw those! And they look so good. But I lack the buttermilk to try them. BUT I'M GOING TO as soon as I can get some! Recipe's on the kitchen counter on the top of my "Try These Next" stack.

Got to go out of town tomorrow, so it'll be a few days before I can get to the store and try them.

Microwave Brownie

I was messing around with a few recipes and accidently came up with this awesome brownie!



Ingredients:

53g egg whites
2 tbsp Splenda/Swerve or sweetener or choice
1 full dropper of Vanilla Stevia
1 tsp baking powder
10g Pea Protein
5g Pea Fibre - will replace with Oat Fiber 500 next time.
2 tbsp Oat Fiber 500
2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk - will omit and replace with water next time.
3+ tbsp water (enough to make a thick smooth batter)
1/4 - 1/2 tsp Konjac Glucomannan Powder
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Chocolate Extract

I think that if I use SF Chocolate Da Vinci or Torani syrup I can cut back 1 tbsp of cocoa and Swerve and still get a rich chocolatey taste but also reduce the carbs. The Pea Fibre has more carbs and less fibre than the Oat Fiber 500, which is why I'm going to try subbing it out. Will try it tonight and see how it turns out.

Instructions:

In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Add wet to dry. Put in greased/sprayed microwave safe container - I use a large pyrex measuring cup to cook it in.

Nuke for 3+ minutes (in 1 minute then 30 second increments.) Once the top is dry and the bottom doesn't look too wet, turn it out onto a plate to dry/set. The bottom of the baking vessel should have very little to no residue left if cooked completely.

After about an hour it will be nice and dense just like a brownie.

Beautiful dessert recipes!!

I am sure that someone has tweaked the oopsie recipe to make it savory but thought I would share mine. I call them rolls btw....

standard oopsie recipe without the splenda and the additions of the following to the yolk mixture...

1 tbsp coconut flour
.5 tsp. onion powder
.25 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. bacon fat

Prepare as normal but just before baking add 1 tbsp. each of dried onion and grated parmesan to the top (spread over 6). Cook as normal.

Mmm. They sounds delish, and LOOK amazing, Cathy! I use them for garlic bread once in awhile, but mine don't usually look as pretty as yours there.

Thanks Peggy, it was tasty!!

I told my DD I would make a chicken and broccoli pizza using the cheese round recipe for dinner tomorrow. I plan on patting the dough onto a cookie sheet, baking it then put the toppings on it and bake until the cheese is melted. It makes a great pizza crust.

Taco night!! We love tacos and I wanted a crispy shell so I made one with cheese. I just spread it out on a plate and microwaved until brown a crunchy. It was really good and stayed together until the end.
