Tossed Spice Chicken Thighs by Hunter Copeland


I'm  in favor of folks eating more fish as well as red meats, but this is an easy chicken recipe that my family seemed to like and I thought I would share.

Ingredients:

1 pound of chicken thighs (works w/ chicken legs)

dried rosemary

sea salt

black pepper

garlic powder

paprika

melted butter or coconut oil

Preparation:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Pat the chicken legs dry. Brush with either melted butter or coconut oil and sprinkle with each spice. You may vary them depending on your taste preferences.  We have tried it with different spices and diffeent amounts.  It is good regardless. Sage and rosemary work well.  Bake the chicken in a shallow baking dish and when you notice liquid flowing from it, baste the droppings back over the top of the chicken.  Also,this recipes isn't as good with breast meat.  Use the fattier chicken parts -thighs or legs.

Recipes:

SPINACH LASAGNA

1 pound ground beef

2 tablespoons onion, chopped

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup spaghetti sauce

8 ounces cream cheese

1 egg

1/8 teaspoon pepper

10 ounces frozen chopped spinach, thawed & drained

4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons parmesan cheese (I used the kind in a can)

Brown the hamburger with the onion; drain off the fat. Mix in the

garlic powder and spaghetti sauce; season to taste and heat until

bubbly. Meanwhile, soften the cream cheese in a medium-size

microwaveable bowl for about 40-60 seconds. Stir until creamy; beat in

the egg and pepper with a spoon until well mixed. Blend in the

spinach. Spread half of the meat mixture evenly in the bottom of a

greased, 8 x 8″ glass baking pan. Spread the spinach mixture over the

meat; top with the mozzarella, then the rest of the meat. It may not

completely cover the top, but that’s ok. Sprinkle with the parmesan

cheese. Bake at 350º about 30 minutes until hot and bubbly. Or, cover

with plastic wrap and vent one corner then microwave on HIGH for 3

minutes; then reduce to MEDIUM and cook for another 7-10 minutes until

hot and bubbly. Let stand 3 minutes before serving.

Recipes:

Bryan's Pro-Biotic Ginger Bug, a recipe that is super simple and can heal / restore health!

Ingredients
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons grated ginger root (skin and all).
1 cup of spring or filtered water (not straight tap water).
Stir these ingredients in a cup (mason jar is best).

Every day or 2 add the same amount of ginger and sugar (and water as necessary).

This will start to bubble, then you know it's active and consuming the sugar.
You just pour a bit (spoonful) of the liquid into a glass of your drinking water, or any cool beverage really.

You'll be consuming just a tiny fraction of a teaspoon of sugar, but you're getting a healthy dose of probiotics.

Amazing!

This liquid can be used for many many purposes. Even making your own ginger ale (or ginger beer as it is called).

Pizza Peppers by Lynn Weiler

4 large 8 inch banana peppers..washed,topped, cut lengthwise and seeded.
Lay them on a foil lined cookie sheet and fill with your favoritw pizza sausage...it takes about a pound
Bake them at about 350 for a half an hour or until they are cooked through and browned on top

While that is baking, saute some coconut oil or butter in a pan with about a pound of sliced mushrooms and 8 diced roma tomatoes. Add 1.2 t basil and a pinch of oregano, salt and pepper, or what ever spices you love on pizza.

When the peppers some out of the over, put two on a plate, spoon the tomato mixture on top and then cover with parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese.
I stuck them back in the warm oven for a couple minutes and wow...I will never miss a pizza crust again.

Mousse au Chocolat Recipe

Mousse au chocolat is a traditional French dessert. I have seen U.S. recipes (like Alton Brown's version) that are nothing like a real French mousse. And guess what? A real French mousse au chocolat is also a fairly low carb treat. Now, this is not a low carb recipe blog, but since I am in Belgium, where I can easily buy 70% or more dark chocolate (which is lower in sugar and high in cocoa butter), I will post one anyway.

The recipe below uses 70% dark chocolate Belgian chocolate (see nutritional information) but you can also make it with 86% dark Belgian chocolate (see nutritional information).  Ghiradelli also sells dark chocolate, if you cannot easily find dark Belgian chocolate. But it and other brands (e.g., Lindt) have soy lecithin in it. Whatever brand of dark chocolate you use, make sure cocoa butter is listed on the label. It is found only in high quality chocolate.

Ingredients:
100 grams (3.52 ounces) of dark chocolate (this recipe assumes 70% dark Belgian chocolate)
1 tablespoon butter
2 eggs

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over water that is simmering, but not boiling. Add butter to the melted chocolate. Note: good Belgian chocolate has a lower melting point than U.S. chocolate and the melted mixture should not be too hot, so it won't cook the egg yolks.

Separate the two eggs. Beat the egg yolks then mix them into the melted chocolate until it is smooth, and without lumps.

Whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whites into the chocolate mixture.

Divide into three dishes and refrigerate for three or more hours. Each mousse will have about seven net grams of carbs per serving.

I usually consume fewer than 30 grams of carbs per day, so this would be about a fourth of my daily total. Therefore I would not recommend eating it very often, but it is a nice way to occasionally treat yourself to some dark chocolate, which is high in healthy cocoa butter.

Shrimp Cocktail Sauce

Take 6 to 8 ripe, medium sized tomatoes. Peel and seed the tomatoes.
Pulse the tomatoes in your food processor (but do not puree; leave chunks).
Add 1/4 cup pure horseradish (or perhaps a bit more, if you like more bite to your sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste.  
Juice from 1/4 lemon
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce (optional).

Then stir it all together. Makes about one cup of cocktail sauce for your cold, boiled shrimp. Without using processed and carb-laden ketchup.

We discovered that it tastes better if it has had a while for the flavors to mix, so prepare some a few hours before you need it. And we sometimes needed to put the sauce on the shrimp with a spoon, but it was really good. It also avoided the necessity of making cocktail sauce with ketchup.

Recipe:

Makes 2-3 normal servings or 1 post-WOD serving

All ingredients are from Trader Joe’s, but any store will do

Ingredients:

1 lb grass-fed ground beef

2 tbsp coconut oil (not from TJs, but you can find it at Whole Foods or onlinehere

1 jar Tomatillo and Roasted Yellow Chili Salsa

3 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp salt

dash of oregano

1 spaghetti squash

Directions:

Poke a number of holes into the spaghetti squash with a fork to release pressure while cooking. Put the squash in the microwave for 15 minutes, rotating every 3.

At the same time, brown the ground beef on medium in a skillet with 3 tbsp of coconut oil. When the beef is halfway done, add the cumin, pepper, salt and oregano. Finish browning the beef, turn the heat to low, and add the jar of salsa. Let this simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes until it thickens.

When the spaghetti squash is done, remove it from the microwave (carefully, it will be hot). Slice off the end caps and cut in half length wise. With a fork, remove the seeds and fibers from the center. Again with a fork, scrape the remaining squash into a new container. Here, you can choose to continue cooking the squash in the microwave with additional oil for 15 more minutes, or pan fry it. The consistency should be soft with a slight crunch to it.

When done, the beef can be served on the bed of squash or mixed together, either hot or cold.

Low Carb BBQ Brisket Prepared in a Smoker and Cooked Twice

 

Since this recipe is nothing but meat (and rub) it is low carb.  I use an electric smoker to get the smoke flavor and also to produce a flavorful “bark” (blackened outside surface) that provides a great deal of flavor.  Since briskets come in 8 to 12 lb. sizes, this makes enough meat for several meals.   Portions can be easily frozen for use later on.

 

 

 

Low Carb BBQ Brisket Recipe, Double-Cooked in a Smoker
5.0 from 1 reviews
Print
Recipe type: Entree
Author: Joe Lindley
Prep time: 30 mins
Cook time: 27 hours
Total time: 27 hours 30 mins
Serves: 12
Low Carb BBQ Brisket (Smoked Beef Brisket) prepared in a Smoker and double-cooked to provide tasty Burnt Ends. This recipe provides tender sliced BBQ beef and chopped BBQ beef.
A smoker is used in this example, however an oven or roaster oven can be used with liquid smoke to obtain the smoky flavor. The oven approach won’t provide as much of the “bark” outer surface characteristic of smoked beef.
Ingredients
  • 8-12 lb. Beef Brisket with the “fat cap” (see Notes) (Select or Choice Grade)
  • Dry Rub (Gordons Grub Rub)
  • Optional Spices for Chopped Brisket (be careful to just spice lightly to punch it up):
  • Coarse Pepper
  • Coarse Sea Salt
  • Onion Flakes
  • Dried Tomatoes (Sprinkles – in a ground form)
  • Cayenne Pepper
Instructions
  1. Set Smoker to 225 Degrees
  2. Wash the brisket with water and dry off
  3. Rub in the dry rub on all surfaces of the Brisket, especially the fat side
  4. Put the Brisket into the Smoker (fat side up) and leave for 1.25 hr. per lb. (i.e. 12.5 hr for a 10 lb brisket)
  5. Remove the Brisket from the smoker and remove the “flat” (Video 2) for refrigeration/freezing and use later.
  6. Immediately wrap the “fat cap” in aluminum foil (two or three layers – Video 2)
  7. Put the fat cap back into the smoker for another 1.25 hr. per lb. (i.e. 12.5 hr for 10 lb brisket)
  8. Remove the fat cap from the smoker, remove meat from it (see video), and chop it up.
  9. Combine all of the chopped fat cap (burnt ends) with some of the flat (chopped) and spice very lightly with the optional spices of your choice to produce chopped BBQ beef.
  10. A suggestion is to save half of the flat for slicing and use as a more formal sliced BBQ entree.
  11. The chopped BBQ from this is spicy enough that, to serve as an entree, it can just be sprinkled with olive oil, reheated in a microwave, and served as is.

Notes

Check the “trim” of the brisket: Sometimes the fat on both sides is completely trimmed off, which is NOT what you want. You want a brisket that has one lean side with the fat trimmed off (called the flat) and one fatty side that has fat over the entire length of the brisket. On the fatty side there should be a thick knot of fat at one end, sometimes intermingled with meat, called the “fat cap”.

Plan ahead: The brisket will be in the smoker for a long time – two long stretches. You don’t want to end up messing with it in the middle of the night. For briskets, 2 hours or so of smoke is about right, so after you’ve finished the smoke phase, you may, if you prefer, transfer the brisket to a preheated oven or roaster oven for the remainder of the cook time, wrapped in aluminum foil in a deep pan to catch the juices.

Debbie Hubbs and Monique Forslund join Jimmy and Mindy (and Christine) for the last of our segments from the 2011 Low-Carb Cruise!

We've got some great recipes today, including a mock Pita for sandwich wraps courtesey of Monique (get the directions here: http://www.lifezone.se/en/food-tips/moniques-very-popular-egg-wraps-3061144) and Debbies crowd pleasin' tongue teasin' Oopsie Rolls which can be made as hamburger buns/deli rolls or as desserts!

Recipe:

Oopsie Rolls

4 eggs (at room temperature)
4 oz cream cheese
1/8 tsp cream of tartar (optional, won't affect the recipe if not used)
1 level scoop vanilla whey protein powder (to give it more of a “bread” texture)

1. Separate eggs into 2 bowls; use glass or grease free metal for the egg whites.

2. Beat the egg whites & cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.

3. In 2nd bowl, beat yolks together with cream cheese and protein powder.  If you want your oopsie for dessert – add splenda or cinnamon or cocoa powder.  Or add garlic powder, pepper, cheese, etc for a more savory oopsie.  Or leave plain.

4. Carefully and slowly fold the yolk mixture into the egg whites.

5. Spray cookie sheet, or muffin top pan with a non-stick cooking spray.  Drop mixture onto cookie sheet or muffin top pan.

6. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes .

Cool completely before storing. To store, layer between sheets of parchment paper, wax paper or non-stick foil.  Place in a gallon baggie in the refrigerator leaving the baggie open overnight which causes them to dry out a bit which makes them more of the consistency of bread.  Can freeze.  OK to double or triple recipe.
 
Makes about 10-12 small rolls.
