Un-corned Beef works on any cut of beef. It's pure low carb deliciousness and hearty St. Patrick's Day fare.

Budget Low Carb is all about staying warm! Winter still lurks and stout March breezes push insistently from the sidelines. Because of this, the months leading into spring are jam-packed with one-pot-low-carb-wonders such as low carb pot roast, low carb soups, low carb stews, and low carb hash. It’s easy to low carb these one-pot phenoms by simply substituting a high fiber, low carb veg in place of carby nonsense like pasta, potatoes, and rice. Great low carb, high fiber veggie substitutes include turnips, cauliflower, green beans, broccoli, cabbage, radishes, even a tiny bit of rutabaga–even though rutabaga is a higher carb choice.
