Sosuthwest Pot Roast

This is a super easy recipe I do about once a month:

SOUTHWEST POT ROAST

3-3.5 lb. Chuck roast (or size you usually cook)
1 can Ro-Tel mild tomatoes and chiles
Dash garlic powder

Place roast in oven, sprinkle with garlic powder (salt if you like) Bake at 350║ until half done (about 1-1.5 hours). Take out and pour entire can of Rotel on top. Pop back into oven to finish cooking (about another 1.5 hours or until tender). The tomatoes and meat juices make a nice "gravy". If you are to the legumes rung of OWL on Atkins, this is great with a guacamole salad and some heated refried beans with melted cheese on top. Here's what it looks like when done:

I made the most freaking delicious snack/dessert today. Okay, so it's 4 ingredients, but who doesn't have these all on hand?? And so simple.

Cinnamon-Sugar Almonds
1/4 cup almonds
about 1/2 tbsp butter
1 splenda packet
cinnamon

Heat up a pan on medium and add in the butter. Once the butter gets all melty and just starting to brown/bubble, add in your almonds. Let the almonds soak up the butter on one side for about 5 minutes or so - don't touch 'em! Once butter is bubbling around the sides of the almonds, stir 'em up so the entire surface area of the almonds is covered in buttery goodness. Let heat up for another 3 minutes or so. Take a bite out of one of them to see if they're ready - the almond should be slightly soft. Pour into a bowl (butter included!). Top with one packet of splenda, and cinnamon to taste. Stir up and enjoy!!

3 carbs, pure deliciousness, perfect for those sweet cravings.

I never tried it but I'm sure you could use your own favorite meatball recipe with fresh meats and they would be even better. We just like the frozen ones for the convenience. Next time we make them I will try it with fresh meat.

To cook them it's either on the smoker at like 250 degrees, or on the grill using indirect heat. If done in the oven maybe 350ish?

Before Low-Carb we would sprinkle them with a BBQ rub that had a decent amount of brown sugar and would glaze them with BBQ sauce the last 20 mins. Just thought maybe you or anyone would like to know in case you make them for non-low carbers and wanted to try that out for them.

Edit: Low Carb BBQ sauce would work for us to right? Is there a brown sugar substitute like splenda or something? I want to stay as far away from sugar substitutes as I can for the time being tho. I seen a really good sounding low carb BBQ sauce recipe online some where yesterday and will have to try and find it... I did, it was posted by, Charski on another board. I'll post the recipe. Hope that's ok?


Char's BEST (low carb) BBQ Sauce Ever!

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
14 ounces canned tomatoes with green chiles -- diced style
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Splenda
1 Tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring -- hickory flavor
1 tablespoon garlic -- minced (from a jar)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon DaVinci Gingerbread flavored sugarfree
syrup
1 teaspoon browning sauce -- Kitchen Bouquet
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce -- chipotle flavor

Place all ingredients in blender. Blend til smooth.

Place in saucepan and simmer til thickened and slightly reduced. Should yield about 2 cups.

Cool, refrigerate; use on BBQ'd pork ribs, chicken, etc.

Description:
"serving = approx 1/4 cup at 3 g. carbs per serving"
Yield:
"2 cups"
Does anyone have an idea how long this BBQ sauce would stay good? Sounds great, but I'd have a hard time using up 2 cups quickly

I know this is an old thread, but I tried this tonight with some pre-cooked Tyson chicken breasts. I used brocolli for the veggie, though. It was DELISH!!!! I'm already planning on making it in the morning to take to work for lunch.

This looks great!! I would probably try it in my crockpot. Would it need any additional ingredients?

It is real good, to be so simple. I got rid of my crock pot years ago. Not a big fan. But I don't think there would be a problem cooking it in a crock pot. There should be enough liquid in the tomatoes to cook it OK. Maybe some crock pot experts will step in and confirm my thought there. I've cooked this in my roaster oven real slow before and it cooked OK that way.

Does crack slaw store well or is it best eaten right away? Can it be frozen?

I personally wouldn't want to freeze it except perhaps to throw into a pot of veggie soup. Most stir-fries should be eaten right away because the veggies get too limp reheating. Imagine Chinese food being served to you at a restaurant that they cooked the day before. Not too good, I wouldn't think.

That's what I was thinking. No one else in the house will eat it, so I usually end up eating all of it, but this time around, I am being much more mindful of portion sizes. I may try it for lunch the next day, and stay away from freezing it.

Easy Beefy Alfredo Mac

I have this meal quite often because it's low carb, easy breezy to throw together quickly and my picky family LOVES it !

Actually 4 ingredients but so easy I had to share

Dreamfields Elbow macaroni Pasta, cooked and drained.
1 Jar Alfredo Sauce
1 Can diced Italian style tomatoes
1 lb Ground beef, browned.

Add Alfredo Sauce, cooked pasta and canned tomatoes to browned ground beef. Mix.
Salt and pepper to taste.

*Sometimes if I have an onion I will dice and add to ground beef while browning.

Hello Everyone.
My first post at Low Carb Friends & of course it's on my favourite thread!

For lunch today I made this dish ...

4 strips bacon ... sliced in to smallish pieces
10 large brussels sprouts ... sliced in to thin strips
1/2 c coconut milk ... I use Aroy-d in the green carton
smoked paprika

Fry the bacon. I keep the fat in the pan to cook the sprouts.
Add sprouts and stir fry until they are well coated and soft.
Add coconut milk and smoked paprika and let simmer for about 10 minutes so that flavours meld.

It makes 2 good-sized servings or 1 big-butt serving if you're really hungry and can afford the carbs.

For the whole dish:
761 cal
31 g carb
27 g protein
62 g fat, yummy fat

WOW !! I just bought a loaf of low carb (4 carbs per slice) sourdough bread made by Julian bakery from a little sugar free store in my town ..... It is sooooo goood !! I am not kidding !! I toasted it with butter and sugar free Jam and I just was in heaven !! If you can't find a store that sells it, they have an online bakery, search it for "Amazing Sourdough"

We do this, but we add bacon to it. It's delicious, and incredibly low-carb, depending on the bread, of course.

I do this in the crock pot (except I dont add the cheese). The chicken is wonderful...it just shreds so beautifully! I put 2 large pieces of chicken breast along with a good amount of salsa.
