Friday, August 18, 2017


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


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

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

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.
