One of the things it seems I have always been able to do is “smell” ingredients and know if I want to use it or not to make something.  I don’t mean eggs or meats but I do mostly mean spices & herbs.  I am able to do the same thing visually in the grocery store.  I can kind of look at foods and decide what I might want for dinner and then I might need this and this…  There can be problems with this system as I can tend to over-buy as I see lots of things I might want and which is why I always go with a list.  For sure I get the listed items and then…I can…get so sidetracked.  It is rare the shopping day that I go into the isles.  I do go into the bulk spice isle and rarely into any of the other one.  I start in the meat department and mostly go directly to produce with perhaps a stop at dairy if I need sour cream. I do have about about 6-7 places I go but always to the same departments in each one.  I am lucky in that I live in one of the foodie towns USA so everything is available to me within about a 20 minute drive and..I don’t even need to go across the “river” (that would be the Willamette) to get to any of them.  There are meat markets, produce markets, Asian markets, & Middle Eastern markets which are plenty enough to feed my little soul.

Boneless Pork LoinThis is the way I like my pork loin to look in the center.  Still pink and juicy.  In the second picture with the halibut I added a few red pepper flakes & the jalapeno juice and they are both keepers.  Sauteed the fish in butter cause…it’s what I always use and that’s the way like it.

This is basically a zero carb meal.

Ingredients
  1. 1½ Lbs Boneless Loin Roast
  2. 1 t Olive Oil
  3. 3 T Lime Juice
  4. 2 T Fish Sauce
  5. 1½ T Finely Chopped Cilantro Stems (Yes, The Stems)
  6. 1 T Just Like Sugar Brown
  7. 1 t Crushed Garlic
  8. ⅛ t Red Chili Flakes (Or 1 t Jalapeno Pepper Juice Or...Both)
  9. Chopped Cilantro (Garnish)
  10. Fresh Pepper (If Wanted)
Instructions
  1. Set meat on counter to room temperature at least 2-3 hours.
  2. Turn oven to broil and let heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Rub meat with olive oil.
  4. Lay foil on sheet pan, place meat, put under broiler about 10" below heat (middle oven shelf) for 5 minutes, turn, broil 5 more minutes, turn over once more for another not more than 5 minutes for a total of about 15 minutes broiling.
  5. Set on counter, cover and let rest 15 minutes. I do not cover mine because I want it just pink instead of taking the chance of ending up with shoe leather. It can only take an extra minute or so, so...
  6. DO NOT overcook.
  7. In a small bowl, starting with lime juice and thru chili flakes an/or jalapeno juice mix all well.
  8. Slice pork & serve with sauce to the side for dipping into.
  9. 4 Servings
  10. 358 Calories, 51.9g Protein, 14.0g Fat, .6g Carbs, 0.0g Fiber, .6g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. If you plan to dip other things except the meat, I would suggest doubling the sauce. If I don't use all mine...I slurp what little is left.
  2. I suggest cutting pork loin in half lengthwise (mine was) as it is easier to slice and eat but I leave that up to you. Asians make smaller portions to use chopsticks and will dip then take a bite etc.
  3. As noted by picture of fish this sauce is good on just about everything that swims, crawls or grazes and yes, even vegetables.

Low Carb Bordelaise Sauce

You’re going to look at the ingredients in this recipe and think to yourself, Deborah has seriously flipped her lid on this one.  Heavy cream & white wine DO NOT a dark gravy make, because those in the know, know that a Bordelaise is made with a red wine and beef stock.  But um, as you can see this is not a truism set in stone.  Look at the picture carefully because that gravy is as dark as anything you could want.  The secret is…the paprika.  Now you say, will that would make it red but nope it doesn’t, it makes it brown.  One can only hope the pictures say it all.  A small filet mignon which is the steak under the sauce is normally used but any good quality steak cut will serve you well.  If you think this sounds good you might try it on a Chicken Fried Steak because yes, it is that good.

Low Carb Islandic Cod Fillets

Low Carb Islandic Cod FilletsLow Carb Islandic Cod FilletsLow Carb Islandic Cod Fillets.  Whew, you would think I might be a little embarrassed by putting up this recipe, but I am not.  It is so ridiculously easy, let alone good, that I couldn’t help myself.  I was originally going to use pili nuts as my topping and I will at some point but while I was making it, I decided to use pork rind dust and never looked back.  I had it the first week and it was so good I got another piece of it yesterday and just had it again today. I don’t know if you use or eat pili nuts or not as they are not only the best nut health-wise for you, they are very expensive too. I don’t eat them so often but I do everyone in a while toast some and eat them.

The reason I say I’m embarrassed by the post is the ease of the recipe and I guess everybody and their brother uses and makes this although maybe not with pork dust or pili nuts.  Awhile ago I bit the dust and ordered Duke’s Mayo and have never looked back.  As I know it, Duke’s is the only sugar-free mayonnaise made and with that said, it is also the best tasting mayo ever.  I do have to order it from the company in South Carolina, but as I said, it is well worth it.  If you live in the South then you can buy it anywhere.  This recipe is for one of those days when you are bone-dog tired and want dinner on the table in 30 minutes.  So easy even a caveman could make it and no wonder it is such a popular dish.

In case you’re wondering that gorgeous spinach veggie on the plate with the cod? is called Spinach Bhaji which is also a new recipe.

  3. Place fish on butter and add salt & pepper.
  4. Spread mayo over fish.
  5. Sprinkle with pork dust.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes and put under broiler until pork dust gets really crispy.
  7. 1 Serving
  8. 619 Calories, 49.7g Protein, 47.7g Fat, 0.0g Carbs, 0.0g Fiber, 0.0g Net Carbs
Notes
  1. One of the nicer things about this fish is its tendency to release a bit of liquid which when mixed with the butter & mayo makes it quite moist while continuing to eat it.
  2. If you end up with the flatter portions of the tail of the cod they tend to overcook.
  3. I did get the large ends both times but the second time I ask for a flatter large end. The first time I made it, as soon as I put it under the broiler my mayo slide off so the second time I ask for a flatter large end and had pretty good success.
  4. If you add 1 T lemon juice it will add 1g carb or...and I do...add it.

Low Carb Pulled Pork

Low Carb Pulled PorkLow Carb Pulled PorkLow Carb Pulled PorkLow Carb Pulled PorkLow Carb Pulled PorkLow Carb Pulled Pork.  Shown is the hunk of meat you use to make Pulled Pork. A boneless pork butt roast is really shoulder meat all rolled together and held with stretch netting. Do not remove the netting until finished cooking and whatever you do, DO NOT throw away the liquid. With a little salt it makes the best drinkable broth ever.

Pulled PorkIf you have a slow cooker (and I do not) it is the easiest piece of equipment to use, but limited in space for a larger roast. For those of you who do not have a crock pot, below is how to cook it in the oven. Years ago in the restaurant I did six of these at a time. Today I only do one and I freeze the meat into 4 and 6 oz portions for all kinds of uses. Here are several recipes to use the pork with: Cubano Sandwich, & Pulled Pork Gyros. Did you know that pulled pork will thicken a sauce?  It does and may be added to the base of Firehouse Fresh Steak Chili, in the sauce for Traditional Spaghetti Squash/Tomato Sauce & this newly added recipe Collard Greens With Smoked Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork

Ingredients
  1. 3 Lb Pork Roast(s) Or As Many As You Want To Fix
Instructions
  1. Lay out two large pieces of heavy foil, and with the meat at room temperature, place in center and encase it, making sure the foil is closed in all directions. NO salt and pepper at this time as the salt will eat through the foil. Now put your package(s) on one more piece of foil which is to cover your sheet pan or roasting pan. Place in the oven at 275° for 4-5 hours depending on the size of the roast. I try to get them as close to 3 lbs. each as possible. For each additional roast over 1 add 45 minutes additional cooking time. To test if finished, snip the top of the netting, dig into the center and if the meat “pulls” apart easily it is. It’s pretty tough to overcook it and if it is not finished close the foil and cook another hour or so. You really do want it to fall apart easily.
  2. Place the roast in a large bowl and remove the netting. With a couple of forks pull apart in several places and let it cool about ½ hour. That fat you see in the net?-use it. Now you are ready to pull the meat and I do this with my hands. There may or may not be some yucky sinuous cartilage & fat and this is to be discarded. If this isn’t your cup of tea then take your forks and pull it into shreds. If you want to leave in the oven all day while at work then turn oven to 225° and go earn some money.
  3. If you family is large and since these take a long time to cook I would suggest making at least 2 and maybe 3 at a time. It freezes perfectly for later use.
  4. Every 3 Lb of roast will yield about 24-30 oz. of meat or about 6-7 oz portioned servings, 2-3 oz of fat, and a good size bowl of broth heaven. (Mine was about 2 C broth with 1½ C left after I added ½ C to pork. Once it is pulled it with soak it up broth like a sponge.
