Low Carb Roast Beef Spread

If your husband finds this Roast Beef Spread in the refrigerator he may grab a fork, stand there with the fridge door open, and eat it out of the bowl and…you will scream at him.  This is good on Sour Cream & Chive Crackers or Hazelnut Parmesan Crackers  and if you decide to use this spread in a sandwich you can put it on Naan Flat Bread (pictured) and top it with Pickled Red Onions or spread it on a Carbalose Flour Tortillas and oh yeah, plain, right out of the bowl with a fork.  It’s OK if you do it…just not your husband.

Mt. Olive Sugar-Free Bread & Butter Chips (wow are these good) are available on Netrition.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

Roast Beef Spread
  1. 1 Pound Cooked Roast Beef
  2. ¼ C Chopped Onion
  3. ¼ C Chopped Celery
  4. ½ C Low Carb Bread & Butter Pickles
  5. ½ C Mayonnaise (More If Necessary)
  6. 1-2 T Pickle Juice To Taste
  7. ½ t Onion Powder
  8. ½ t Salt
  9. ¼ t Pepper
  1. Put beef and onion, celery, and pickles in food processor, pulse until small & evenly chopped, and transfer to bowl. Add remaining ingredients, with enough mayonnaise and pickle juice to taste and moisten as desired. Serve as a spread on hazelnut crackers. Naan Flat Bread or as a spread for sandwiches on Carbalose flour bread.
  2. Toast the bread, or not, and spread with a little butter or mayonnaise. Spread a layer of the roast beef spread and finish with a few threads of pickled red onion & a couple of pickles.
  3. 6 Servings
  4. 287 Calories, 17.1g Protein, 28.7g Fat, 1.1g Carbs, .2g Fiber, 0.9g Net Carbs
  5. 8 Servings
  6. 215 Calories, 12.8g Protein, 21.5g Fat, 0.8g Carbs, .2g Fiber, 0.6g Net Carbs
  7. 10 Servings
  8. 172 Calories, 10.2g Protein, 17.2g Fat, 0.6g Carbs, .2g Fiber, 0.4g Net Carbs
  1. Another alternative serving suggestion: Put a couple of pieces of lettuce on a small plate and serve as a side salad.
  2. I had occasion to do a prime rib roast but if you slow-cook your own chuck roast and shred it this works wonderfully for this recipe, it’s much less expensive and you may not need to process it.
  3. My best guess is that you will get 8-10 servings from this unless you pile it on a very large sandwich.
  4. If you’ve not had Mt Olive sugar-free bread & butter pickles they are a quick, safe addiction.
  5. I gussied it up a bit with a few pickled red onions & a couple of pickles.

As a former chef I have always been particularly partial to desserts.  Pastries, cakes, and the like.  Not necessarily in the eating of them but in the artistry of making them.

One Samurai Tradition says:  from the moment you awake, devote yourself to the perfection of whatever you pursue.  I admire this practice and strive to emulate it.

 All the Low-Carbing Among Friends cookbooks and maybe a couple of Jennifer Eloff’s books are mostly all you’ll need.  Some people just love collecting cookbooks and if you are one of these people then have at it.

Where To Buy Low Carb Products

www.netrition.com  Hands down the best.  They sell some (in my opinion) dubious products and they don’t have everything but they sure have a lot.

You can also buy through www.amazon.com but personally, I prefer Netrition.

Ronald Reagan famously said, “Trust but Verify”.  At the signing of the INF Treaty, his counterpart Mikhail Gorbachev responded:  “you repeat that at every meeting,” to which Reagan answered:  “I like it”…I like it too.
