  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapenos, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Line a large baking sheet with foil or spray with non stick spray, if desired.
  3. In a large bowl mix all ingredients including your choice of seasoning with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Take a couple tablespoons of meat mixture and roll into a ball, about 2 inches in diameter. Mine made about 24. You can make larger if you prefer, it will just make less.
  5. Place meatballs on baking sheet. 
  6. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until meatballs are browned and fully cooked through. 
  7. Keep an eye on them close to the end of cooking time, all ovens are different and they may cook quicker. Alternatively, if you made larger meatballs they may require a few extra minutes in the oven.
  8. Enjoy tossed in your favorite spicy low carb tomato sauce, by themselves, or on a low carb roll as a sub.
  9. Optional: If you’d like them crispy you can fry the cooked meatballs in a tablespoon of coconut oil over medium heat.

Notes

 

Grinding pork rinds: To make these I place an an ounce or two of pork rinds into the food processor and pulse until they’re fine crumb like and then measure. 

I’ve noticed some brands are more dense than others so the measurements by weight may vary a little. 

Just be sure to have 1/2 cup measured after pulsing them.


Sub pork rinds with 1/2 cup almond flour, if desired. I prefer pork rinds because they just add a little salt, no other flavors. Subbing with almond flour will change taste and increase carbs.


You can freeze the meatballs after cooking them. 


Simply toss in your favorite sauce in a skillet, oven, or microwave to reheat for a quick meal.

Instructions

 

In a pot or dutch oven over medium heat melt the coconut oil. Once hot, sear chicken thighs until lightly brown.


Pour in enchilada sauce and water then add onion and green chiles. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook chicken for 17-25 minutes or until chicken is tender and fully cooked through to at least 165 degrees internal temperature.


Carefully remove the chicken and place onto a work surface. Chop or shred chicken (your preference) then add it back into the pot. Let the chicken simmer uncovered for an additional 10 minutes to absorb flavor and allow the sauce to reduce a little.


To Serve, top with avocado, cheese, jalapeno, sour cream, tomato, and any other desired toppings. Feel free to customize these to your preference. Serve alone or over cauliflower rice if desired just be sure to update your personal nutrition info as needed.

Toppings (feel free to customize)

 1 whole avocado, diced

1 cup shredded cheese (I used mild cheddar)

1/4 cup chopped pickled jalapenos

1/2 cup sour cream

1 roma tomato, chopped

Instructions

 

You may want to bake flatbread first so it has time to bake and cool while you prepare the ground beef and sauce.


Flatbread

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Line large baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  • In large bowl, place mozzarella and almond flour. 
  • Break cream cheese into small pieces and place into bowl.
  • Microwave bowl for 1 minute, or until all ingredients are melted and easily mixed.
  • Using spoon or rubber spatula, mix ingredients until ball forms. 
  • Wet hands with a bit of water and pick up dough ball. Form it until smooth and all ingredients are fully combined.
  • Use a knife to cut dough ball into 4 even sections.
  • Re-wetting hands when necessary (prevents sticking) press each dough ball out into flat circle, about 5-6 inches in diameter. 
  • You may do this in hands or on baking sheet, whichever is easier.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or until flatbread begins to turn golden brown. 
  • They may puff up a bit, that’s ok.
  • Keep warm for serving. 
  • (Stacking and covering with a towel will work)
  • If your dough is too stiff or will not spread, it may be too cold. Place it back in the microwave for 5-10 seconds and it should be easier to spread.


Spiced Beef

  • Brown ground beef in skillet over medium heat. 
  • When no pink remains, drain grease.
  • Add onion, jalapenos, ginger, cumin, cloves and water. 
  • Bring to quick boil then simmer for about 10 minutes until most of water has evaporated from pan and onions are soft. 
  • Turn off heat and add cilantro.


Tzatziki Sauce

  • In large bowl, place sour cream, cumin, dill, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. 
  • Whisk together until smooth.
  • Add cucumber to bowl and fold in until fully covered with sauce.

To Serve

 

Place 1/4 of beef mixture on flatbread and top with 1/4 of sauce mixture. Fold and garnish with additional jalapeno and cilantro,if desired.


I didn’t weigh this recipe for nutritional purposes. If you need more accurate serving information, place beef and sauce separately on food scale to get weight in grams. Divide weight by 4 and that will give you the grams per serving.

Instructions

 

Preheat slow cooker on the low setting. Season the stew beef generously with salt and pepper.


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and sear until browned on the outside, then transfer it, with juices, to the slow cooker.


To the slow cooker, add the stock, sherry, coconut aminos, vinegar, bell peppers, mushrooms, shallows, garlic, ginger, five spice powder, and red pepper flakes. Stir to combine, cover and cook for 6 hours.


Add the snow peas and cook for an additional hour.


Garnish the beef with green onions and sesame seeds.


Serve over cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles, if desired. These are not included in nutrition information.

Notes

 *may be substituted with extra beef stock


To reduce the amount of carbs in this recipe, simply reduce the amount of snow peas and adjust your personal nutrition information accordingly.


The recipe states that it makes 8 servings, I do not have exact measurements. 

If you need the exact amount, place an empty bowl on your food scale and zero it out. Then add the contents of your slow cooker to the bowl, weighing in grams.

Divide that number into 8 and it will give you the amount of grams for each serving.
