In partnership with FaveHealthyRecipes, I wasn’t sure I was originally going to produce this video as it seemed a bit simple and perhaps too simple to be video-worthy. Then my twins said this was the best low carb recipe I had ever made, so I took to the question to FB fan page, and they demanded (said tongue in cheek) to see the recipe. Fearing to let my fans down, I made plans to prepare it again and record the video this time. I didn’t have time today to make low carb biscuits, but having the sloppy joes on a salad was also very good.

For even more low carb family friendly recipes, FaveHealthyRecipes has a large section of low carb beef recipes. (
