INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 32 oz boneless, cooked Steak
  • 1 pepper Jalapeno Peppers
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 4 tbsp Green Taco Sauce
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 0.5 tsp Cumin
  • 0.5 tsp Salt

DIRECTIONS

If you are in Phase 1, wrap the cooked beef in Boston or bibb lettuce leaves to serve. If you are in Phase 2, you can also wrap them in low-carb tortillas (no more than 4 grams of Net Carbs per tortilla), but don't forget to count the additional carbs.

  1. Trim fat from beef.  Place beef, salsa, garlic, green onions, jalapeño, chili powder, cumin and salt in a slow cooker.  Cover and cook on low 8 hours, or until beef is very tender.
  2. Remove beef and shred, using two forks.  Mix beef with 1/2 cup cooking juices before serving.

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fibre and sugar alcohols (also known as polyols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fibre and sugar alcohols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
