Beef Tibbs

Can we really use salt with this? Moderator comment: Yes, the 1/8 tsp per serving adds some extra flavor without making it too high in sodium for a kidney diet. Considering that this recipe provides the meat and vegetable for a meal, 326 mg sodium is acceptable. Of course you can leave the salt out if desired to reduce sodium to 117 mg/serving.

What is the difference in the beef recipes that are listed as non-dialysis and the ones listed for dialysis only. A lot of them seem to have the same amount of protein and other nutritional factors.

Beef Tibbs

Added one clove of crished garlic, served over rice, and had a small garden salad and dinner roll. Excellent mel!
