Helpful hints

  • For lower carbohydrate replace brown sugar with brown sugar substitute.
  • You can also make this recipe in a crock pot.
  • This is nice to fix a day ahead; when refrigerated, all the fat hardens and is easy to remove.
  • Divide extra meat into individual servings and freeze for a quick meal later.
  • For CKD non-dialysis adjust beef portion to match your meal plan if you are on a limited protein diet.
