Low-Carb

Mediterranean Beef Rump Roast in the Slow Cooker

I made the most delicious, gluten-free roast braised in my slow cooker the other day. It was lean and flavorful and it sliced easily so it was easy to serve. The juices were fragrant with the Mediterranean seasoning and the savory vegetables. And, to top it all off, the sandwiches that I will make from the leftovers will be wonderful… We’ve had this before… Many times!

When I did thicken the juices to make a gluten-free gravy the way my husband likes it, we really enjoyed it. I used sweet rice flour for thickening this time. But, arrowroot powder or potato starch flour would work too if you’re cooking paleo.

A little while before serving time, I stirred the thickener into some of the juices and then stirred that back into the crockpot. It made such an easy gravy! There was plenty of flavor in the juices, so without any thickening it would still be excellent if you are on a low-carb diet.

Tolerant Organic Red Lentil Rotini Salad with Cauliflower, Peppers & Tomato

I discovered a new brand of rotini with good flavor and lots of nutrition.

I was interested in this new product from Tolerant when I saw that it is made solely of lentils – Non-GMO Organic Red Lentils… Nothing else.

That makes it gluten-free and also free of the top eight allergens. This low-glycemic rotini is certified gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, vegan and kosher.

Since it is made from red lentils, it has a delicate pink tint that is lovely and appetizing whether in a salad with greens and dressing or in a skillet with peppers, onion and sauce.

Gluten-Free Pasta Elbows with Sauce & Veggies — an Easy Alternative to Gluten-free Spaghetti

I usually use my own preference for the proportion of pasta to vegetables in this dish. Try it and decide what works best for you. I often cook more veggies than the recipe calls for. And, I’ll keep them in a separate dish so that I can add more of them to my plate if the mood strikes me.

Depending on how many carbs I’ve already had that day, I may skip the pasta entirely and just have my sauce with the veggies… I really like just the veggies in sauce sometimes.

This is one of my family’s favorite gluten-free ground beef recipes. The gluten-free sauce combined with the ground beef seasoned perfectly to your taste can be a marvelous addition to your meal time.

Barbecue Pulled Pork in the Slow Cooker

My husband Al, who doesn’t like anything barbecue… And, don’t get me started about Al and hot spices… He surprised the “bejeebers” out of me. I’ll tell you more about Al in a moment. But first…

… First, let me explain that I was going to be out of the house all day and I needed something that I could make that was yummy as well as really easy. Pulled barbecued pork seemed like just the thing because I could dump it in my crock pot and leave it to cook slowly all day while I was away “taking care of business.”

I had some pork loin roast in the ‘fridge that was just begging to be used. So, before I left the house yesterday, I grabbed the roast, put it in the crock pot, bones and all, added enough water so it wouldn’t boil away in the next 10 or so hours and the necessary barbecue “stuff.”

Now, back to Al…

Braised Pork Loin Chops with Green Onion Are Gluten-Free and Paleo

The flavors of pork chops and green onion work together so that this easy recipe hardly needs much else. We like these braised chops often, so it’s a good thing the boneless pork loin is so lean and quick to cook. When my family asks, “How long till supper is ready?” — I can tell them this will be ready soon!

It can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. That makes a great weeknight supper, but it tastes good enough for guests, too. Match it with a side dish of asparagus or green beans and possibly some potatoes for a well-rounded meal.
