CHILI GROUND BEEF

I browned about three pounds of beef with turmeric and black pepper
I chopped onions and green peppers
I added this to the slow cooker with chopped green pepper and three chopped peppercini and a few cloves of fresh garlic sliced.
About two thirds of a large 28oz can of diced tomatoes

NO BEANS.  THESE ARE MADE SEPARATELY FOR ADD ON.

Spices were small hand measures (less that tablespoon)
chili power
cumin powder
coriander


These spices were more liberal
paprika
a few bay leaves
turmeric again
celery seed
tarragon
coriander

All done in the slow cooker.

Beans are also designed to be more spicy as Elizabeth won't eat them, but I will.

Low carb coating for country fried steak, or fish, or chicken

Substitute protein powder for flour

Unflavored soy, soy/whey blend, or rice protein powder is a decent flour substitute. Dip poultry or fish into beaten egg and then dredge it in herbed protein powder and fry it. Or you can mix an egg, a little cream and water, and the protein powder to make a batter.

PRESSURE COOKED RAW VEGGIES

SMALL CABBAGE HALVED
HALF A DOZEN CARROTS IN 3 INCH PIECES
TWO ONIONS QUARTERED
TWO RED PEPPERS STRIPPED
SPRINKLE OF INDIAN SWEET SEEDS  KALA JAKA  cumin
TWO CUPS OF WATER
MANUAL SETTING  FOR 8 MINUTES OF STEAM

Let the steam reduce itself.

**************************

afterwards.
I could do with less water.  Perhaps just a cup is enough.
I could do with 6 minutes of steam next time.
Don't go too heavy on the cumin seed. It is pretty full of flavor.  E  liked it, just not the carrots.  She is not a great fan of carrots. 
The smaller cabbage was a good pick.  It did not dominate tastes.

Slow Cooked pea soup

11 cups of water to 4 and a half cups of peas. 

Could have used a bit more water.  Try 13 cuts.  Peas could use a lower carb rate.  I won't have them very often.

This ink has us cut the chicken in half and then push it down to break the backbone and flatten it out.  It also suggests leaving the seasoned chicked in the refrigerator for a time to get crispier skin.
