new recipe

This may be a record for me -- three posts in one day!  :-)  But even my husband urged me to include the recipe for our supper's main dish (a low-carb-ified version of an old family favorite):

GROUND BEEF GRAND STYLE (AKA "fake stroganoff")

one onion, chopped
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
small can of mushrooms, chopped
8 oz. cream cheese
2 T. catsup (or 1 T. tomato paste)
1/3 c. or more of cream
1 t. worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. tabasco
2 t. or more of salt
pepper to taste

Brown the onions, mushrooms and beef together, drain the fat.  Add the cream cheese and warm over a low flame to soften.  Stir in the other ingredients and adjust the seasonings to taste and texture (should be pretty moist -- not too stiff -- add more cream as needed).  Spoon into a casserole and bake at 350 F till bubbly.  Serve with your favorite low-carb bread ("paleo biscuits" are perfect).


  1. damn sounds good, gonna try this!

  2. my family has always loved the higher-carb version of this -- i hope you like it!

  3. Tried the "new" recipe here. I think I like it better than the old one! YUM!!

    1. i think it turned out to be a good "translation".... it's not significantly more difficult, and you know what's in it (no wheat or MSG)! :-)
