Kufta ( MEDI friendly-Egyptian style mini burgers)

These are yummy. Gives a new spin to the traditional American burger.

2 lbs 93/7 ground beef
1 small onion minced
4 Tbsp dry parsley (fresh is great, but I find I never use all of it, so it spoils)
2 tsp Curry Powder
1 tsp Chili powder
2 large eggs ( I use in place of bread crumbs)

Mix all ingredients WELL, like you're making a meat loaf.
Form the mixture into mini size burgers (approximately 24 patties)
Grill until done.

I like to serve these with tomato and cucumber salad (diced with oil & vinegar). The traditional sauce to server these with is Tahini. Tahini (Joyva tahini) is VERY MEDI friendly, and can serve as your daily fat serving.
If preparing for the family, it is traditional to serve these with rice or pita bread for dipping into tahini sauce. For us Americans, I'm sure French Fries would be just fine, BUT not for US MEDI followers.

Tahini Sauce
1 tbsp Tahini
1 minced clove garlic
Dash of salt & pepper
Splash of Vinegar
Nice squeeze of Lemon Juice
Add water a LITTLE at a time, to make a dipping sauce, that is not Runny.
Serves 1

Nutrition Info for KUFTA (8 servings):
1 serving (approximately 3 burgers): 228 cals, 2 carbs, 12g fat, 28g protein

Here are 2 pork chop recipes that I love but they are a little higher in calories. I have substituted skinless chicken breasts and they are equally good you just have to adjust your calories and cooking times accordingly.

Low Carb Smothered Pork Chops

2 6oz Pork Chop (no bone)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup chopped Onions
1 Cup sliced Mushrooms
1 clove minced garlic
1 cup College Inn light Fat Free Chicken Broth
1 bay leaf
1 cup reduced fat sour cream
(you can use fat free I just don't like it)
2 tsp paprika

Saute onion and mushrooms in oil, add in garlic towards end and cook until done. Remove veggies from pan, then brown trimmed pork chops on each side. Pour off any excess oil (I pat the porkchops to remove any extra oil). In same pan, lower heat and add broth and bay leaf and return chops to liquid. Cover and cook on low for about 1 hr until meat is tender. (if needed add water or more broth to pan).
When done remove chops and keep warm. Heat up juices in pan and reduce to half. Add in veggies, sour cream and paprika and heat through. Do not let boil.
Can be served over chops or on the side.

Per serving:
Calories: 418
Carbs: 17 (net 13)

Pecan Roasted Pork Chops
2 6oz boneless chops
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/4 cup French's fried onions, finely crushed (Can leave off for -3 Carbs and -45 calories but add alot of flavor)
1/4 tbsp Splenda
Seasoning salt

Preheat oven to 425. Combine pecans, onions and splenda. Spray baking pan wih olive oil spray and placed seasoned chops on pan. cover with crumb mixture. Bake about 12 min., making sure not to over cook.
Calories: 425
Carbs 7 (net 4)
I have also made this (with mixture adjusted) with a pork tenderloin for a dinner party and everyone loved it. But I don't have the nutrional info for it.

Crock Pot Roast

Some people prefer to serve this as a soup (my DH), but I like it as a gravy for eye of round roast.

3 cups Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup Family Size
3 cups Water
1 package Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 Eye of Round, trimmed well

Combine in Crock Pot. Mix Soup, water, and soup mix well. Add roast. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Add salt to taste. If the gravy isn't thick enough for you, you can add guar gum or xantham. My house loves it, just the way it is.

Nutrition Information for Soup/Gravy completed Servings 24:
Serving size 1/4 cup: Calories 32, Carbs 4, Fat 2, Fiber

Weigh your Eye of Round Serving, calculate calories per MEDI weight loss guidelines.

Steak "Stir Fry"

Steak “Stir Fry”

1 cup steamed cauliflower, riced
1 cup sliced mushrooms
4 oz. thin sliced sandwich steak

Combine cauliflower rice & mushrooms in frying pan, cook 3 minutes or until desired consistency. Pan sear sandwich steak until cooked to desired temperature. Place cauliflower rice & mushrooms on plate, top with sliced steak. Voila! Makes 1 serving.

Nutrition info: 292 cal, 13.6g fat, 17g carb, 33.7g protein

Nutrition breakdown:

4oz. steak: 220 cal, 12g fat, 4g carb, 28g protein
1 cup cauliflower, riced: 28 cal, .6g fat, 5.1 carb, 2.3g protein
1 cup mushrooms: 44 cal, 1g fat, 8 carb, 3.4g protein

Of course, this can be played around with to reduce the carbs/calories by using chicken or shrimp instead and other veggies. I just made this up today since I was craving stir fry!

PS- Riced cauliflower is my new best friend!

My favorite!

Black Pepper
Dry seasonings - I use Italian mixture mostly
Garlic Powder
Grated Parm - good old in the plastic bottle (If I am going "greek" I use Feta)
Added some Paprika tonight

Basically - play around with the seasonings!

If the chicken breasts are thick slice them in half.
Drizzle olive oil in the bottom of a casserole dish and add a little of all of your seasonings and cheese. Now a layer of chicken a little rough chopped onion and some of the rough chopped mushrooms. Now repeat the oil, seasoning and cheese. Finish with onions, mushrooms, oil, seasoning and cheese.
You can make this ahead put in the fridge (covered of course) overnight and cook the next day for dinner.
Bake (uncovered) at 375 degrees for about an hour.

We usually have a little of everything with a little salad or veggie for the first meal. I separate everything into separate containers; use a little onion and mushrooms in eggbeaters for breakfast. Some chopped chicken fora quick cold chicken salad.

The broth that comes out of this is SOOOO Good! Look for the quick soup recipe in the recipe thread! yummy!
OMG! I made this last night. It was fabulous!
