Beef / Breaded steak on grill (Almond flour/ Parmesan breading)
« on: April 12, 2021, 12:31:39 PM »
I wanted to try my Alond Flour/ Parmesan mix on the grill instead of frying

So here is the cook...

I use cube steak and then add a little oil (if frying use egg)
I mix 50/50 almond flour and parmesan cheese add a little salt to taste and parsly.

I dip the steak in the oil then dredge the steak into the mix then set in the fridge for a few hours to set up

Set the SRG on med high temp setting and cleaned the grate. I then added some pellets for a little smoke flavor.

Normally the breading stays on well but this did not?  Not sure why and any suggestions are welcomed

Taste was wonderful though!

Baking / Detroit style low carb

Got to thinking how good my puff pastry turned out and decided to try it as a pizza crust.   Turned out VERY good, I was impressed on the texture just wished I had a better baking pan

The recipe was simple.....

2 cup Alomnd flour
1/2 cup VWG
1/2 cup Poolish 
1/2 cup warm water (110 temp)
1/8 tps dry yeast
1/2 tps salt

1 stick butter (to be used later for puff dough recipe)

Mix water and poolish together and let it sit 10 mins.
Mix all dry ingredents then add poolish/water to the mix stir and let it hydrate for 10 mins.   

I let it sit for a few hours to rise then devide into two dough balls.  Each should make a 9 in pizza crust

To make the puff pastry, take one dough ball...
I took a stick of butter and graded it like cheese to make it work better when folding into the dough for puff dough
I added butter and folded dough rolled it out added butter and folded,  repeated this step 6 times to build layers

After I folded it I set it back in the fridge for an 1 hour to set before placing in baking dish

Cooked at 350 for 25 mins

Chicken / BACON crusted Chicken breast
« on: December 09, 2020, 08:02:56 PM »
One of my favorite chicken recipes.  Chicken coated with bacon bits.


4 skinless or skinned breast
  mayo or egg wash as a binder
8 oz bacon bits ground fine
S&P to taste

1. Brine chicken for 12 to 24 hrs in a basic brine
2. Dry chicken well the dip in egg wash or slather with mayo
3. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with Pam or other non stick spray
4. Bake at 450 for 15 mins and ck IT of breast

Other ways to do this is add parmesan chips crushed fine to the bacon bits before coating.

This cook I used egg wash not mayo

« on: December 09, 2020, 03:18:24 PM »
Kimmie found this recipe so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Really good, similer to salisbury steak yet only 2 carbs per chop.


4 Pork Chops
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1   tsp Italian seasoning
1   tsp onion powder

Butter/Garlic sauce:

3 Tbs Butter
4 Cloves Garlic
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 Tbs lemon juice (optional)

1..Season chops with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and onion powder.

2.. Melt butter in pan and add cloves of garlic till they are translucent

3.. Add the chops and cook till you have a crust on both sides

4.. Pour broth, lemon juice and cream over the chops and move them around to mix up the sauce. REDUCE heat and let the sauce thicken till gravy like and they are ready to serve.   

Beef / Sunday roast beef
« on: November 16, 2020, 02:53:48 PM »
I was at Sam's club Saturday morning and ran across a beautiful roast just begging to be smoked then seared at 600+ temp on the SRG.

I trimed the roast then placed it in a gal size bag with 1 can beef broth, 1/4 can water and 2 tsp's garlic powder

Let it sit over night turning every few hours.  Removed and dried, rubbed with oil & added a little salt, pepper and just a little more garlic powder and a little rosemary. 

Placed in my homebuilt SRG pellet grill and smoked till IT of 135 was reached, then placed on another SRG that had been warming up to a temp of 600+.   

Once the roast has a good sear I placed in a pan with the brine I used to before (after I boiled it and strained it) plus one more can of beef broth so I could make Au Jus.

let it sit on top of the SRG grate for 45 mins then removed to slice up for sammies!   

Chicken / Lower Carb BBQ sauce at WalMart
« on: November 09, 2020, 08:00:46 PM »
Was at WalMart and found this sauce thought I would give it a try.

It's not bad, not real sweet but not sour either so it's a good mix for those looking for lower carb sauce

I cooked these on the SRG with hickory pellets smoking away!!

Appetizers / Low Carb Fritos (SORTA)
« on: November 09, 2020, 02:30:29 PM »
Tailgating is my game said this about my low carb Deritos "Looks good Tommy now if you can do a low carb FRITOS...."

Well I gave it a shot just to see :)

Here is my first try, not bad but not real Fritos either.  BUT, for a crisp chip that can be used to dip cheese or even add to a taco salad they are perfect.

Taste is very close to those chips/fried noodles you use for soups from a chinese resturant   

Baking / Here is another type of hotdog/sausage wrap
« on: November 04, 2020, 03:07:20 PM »
Here is another type of hotdog/sausage wrap

These were hot Conecuh sausage but hotdogs work just fine   You just need to make sure sausage is cooked through before you wrap to make sure they are cooked through 

1 cup almond flour
1 cup mozzarella cheese
2 tsp psyllium husk fiber
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/4 pack of yeast
1/3 warm water (activate yeast)
pinch salt
1/2 Tbs of whole wheat flour (use at second mix)

Mix all together but cheese. Form a dough ball let it rise 1 hr then melt cheese in a bow and combine the dough ball and cheese till you have another dough ball, then dust with wheat flour.  Let rise another hour then cut into strips and wrap hot dogs or precooked sausage.

Bake on a silicone sheet (non stick) at 350 for 15 mins or until golden brown   

Low-Carb Products & Ingredients / Low carb Doritos I DID IT!!!
« on: October 30, 2020, 01:20:09 PM »
Made these from Lavish bread and powdered cheese

Lavish bread can be bought at Wal mart but the powder cheese I found at a local store but sure you can find it on the net

Anyway I cut the lavish bread to shape and lightly fried then drain oil and coated with powder cheese mix with onion powder, garlic powder and salt to taste 

Really close to Doritos
