Kata's Breakfast Quesadilla

I was a huge grilled cheese fan before LCing. This recipe started with just the tortilla and the cheese and grew from there. Just yesterday I got the idea to add the fried eggs to the sandwich. I tried it this morning and it was great. My husband loved it too. This is probably not the best for induction, but it could be ok for others. There should be only 9 net carbs after subtracting the fiber. I entered the nut. info for the tortilla and the lunchmeat straight from the package. I know I shouldn't be using lunchmeat, especially on that has brown sugar in it, but it is so good that I am willing to make the sacrifice elsewhere in my day..LOL. Probably using a different type of meat would get it lower in sodium, as well, since it is rather high.

1 low carb tortilla
2 Fried eggs
2 slices Cheese
4 slices Brown Sugar Ham lunchmeat
1 tablespoon butter

Melt a little of the butter in a frying pan and brown the lunchmeat. When lunchmeat is done, set aside and fry eggs as you normally would and set aside with lunchmeat.
Butter one side of tortilla and lay flat in pan, butter side down.
Break one piece of cheese in half and spread them out side by side on one end of tortilla. (We are going to fold the other end of the tortilla on top of everything, kind of like an omelet.)
Lay the lunchmeat on top of the cheese, then put the eggs on top of the lunchmeat, then top off with the other slice of cheese.
Fold the tortilla over the filling and let brown on both sides. Be careful when flipping this!

Italian Roast Beef

3-4 lb rump roast
garlic cloves (3 or 4 sliced)
bottled italian dressing
pepper
grated parmesan cheese

Poke holes in the top of the rump roast (I use the tip of kitchen shears to make nice big slits) Put some sliced garlic cloves and grated parmesan cheese in each slit. ( I make about 12 holes in the roast). Put roast in crockpot, pour about 1 cup of italian dressing over it, sprinkle the top with parmesan cheese and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Slice and serve pot drippings over the beef. Yummy...

My mouth is watering. It sounds so easy. Going to have to try this. I bet the pan drippings would be great over some smashed cauliflower.

Trust me...........it's really good! Tonight I drained the leftover roast (from the italian dressing) and heated it in beef gravy and served it over low carb bread.............it was as good as I've had out in local restaurants.....hot roast beef with gravy over bread........yummmmmm

Crockpot brand recomendations

Hello,
Don't post very much, but reading these recipes makes me hungry! I need to buy a slow cooker and need a recommendation. As I was reading through this thread, many people said that new slow cookers actually cook at to high temperature therefore not cooking the food 'slow' at all.

What's your recommendations for someone that needs to go buy one. I usually out of the house 10 hours a day so I need a really slow one.

Thanks,
Christian

I agree, mine does cook at a high heat. I start my crockpot at low and then come home at lunch and turn it down to warm. That isn't going to help if you are gone for 10 hours though. Hum....................As soon as you wake up in the morning, maybe you should "preheat" the crockpot for a little bit before putting cold foods in. Possibly 10 to 15 minutes. After it preheats put in all your foods. Then, while you are getting ready for work, leave it on high for that time. Then turn it down to warm before walking out the door.

As far as I know, crockpots are all the same. I have 2 at the moment and they are both different brands. I recommend getting one with a removeable crock though. It is easier to clean that way. I will never have one that won't pull out again.

Good Luck!

OMG, I just realized how many crock pots I have!
I have a 1 Quart, a 2 Quart, a 4 Quart and an old 6 Quart! And I'm not givin' up any of 'em!

Right now I've got Cucumbers Masquarading as Apples in the 1 quart, Breaded and Fried Beef Chunks in the 2 Quart (to make Black Soybean chili later) and Beefy Mushroom Soup in the 4 Quart. My house smells like beefy apples!

Hey Christian, I've heard of people buying some kind of Plug-Voltage Regulator, kinda a dimmer switch, and plugging their new crocks into them and increasing the resistance in order to get it to cook at a lower temp than the "high" but higher than the "low". Or maybe getting one of the fancier ones that allows you to choose the temperature digitally.

Well, after a couple of weeks doing some research I have finally broken down and bought a slow cooker. I hope that a slow cooker will help me stick to my diet, as I can come home and have dinner ready after a long day of work.

And the winner is.........The Hamilton Beach Set and Forget 33956.

I picked this one because it has features that I want like a programmable timer, 'keep warm' setting, and a manual setting. Also, at $34.95, its a bargain compared to the $100+ Cuisinart or All-Clad. Most reviews I read loved it, and the ones that didn't centered on that it broke after a couple of uses. I figure there's always a few lemons around. In addition, as previous posts on this thread indicate, most reviews of slow cookers state that 'newer' ones cook at too high a temp. in order to comply the the USDA 'safe' food temps. So I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something that wouldn't braise the meat like it's supposed to.

Sooooo........since today is my day off of work, I decided to experiment with my new toy and test it to see how well it does. I decided to do pork ribs, since they usually need a long time to cook to become tender, and I have never been able to cook ribs like you would find at a good BBQ joint. Even if they come out half as good as a restaurant, I way ahead of anything I've ever cooked before. Ribs are a poor cut of meat, they're tough and require low and slow cooking, which is exactly what a slow cooker should do. I found a simple recipe and have them in the cooker now. When they're done tonight I'll post an update.

Well, here are my results......

I put two racks of pork ribs, rubbed with McCormick's pork rub (this rub has a little sugar in it, I didn't have time to make my own), cut into 2 or 3 rib pieces and standing on their end in the slow cooker. Set the cooker on low and let it go! Everything seemed to be going fine until about 6 hours into the time the cooker seemed to just turn off by itself (a problem I read about in some of the reviews). Luckily I was 'pot watching' it and turned it back on within minutes.

After about 8 hours of cooking time I took the ribs out and put them in a 400 degree oven for about 10 min, while I got the rest of the dinner together. There was a lot of fat in the bottom of the cooker, so that's why I put the ribs in the oven to 'dry out'. Except for turning off, the cooker did exactly what it was supposed to do. The ribs were unbelievably tender and just fell off the bone. I served them with some low carb cole slaw and celeriac fries.

I'm going to give the cooker one more chance before I return it, just to make sure I didn't make a mistake (as I often do). Tomorrow, I think I'm going to make a roast......results to come.

Christian

Metqa, you can go to the photo on Amazon and zoom in - the one photo shows them nested and all on the base with the lid on.

THAT looks like a wonderful crockpot and I think I'll ask Santa for it!

They were amazing (in my opinion )

4 Chicken drum sticks (seasoned with meat tenderizer)
1/2 green/bell peppers
1/2 oinion

cooked on HIGH for a few hours.

The drum sticks were falling off the bone once they were done.

Absolutely. You can pop any kinda meat in the crock pot. It will all turn out tender and juicy.
