Big dinner after a fast. T-bone steak, cucumber, cottage cheese, salad with ranch dressing and shredded cheese, and pork rinds. For a desert I had heavy whipping cream with peanut butter powder whipped in.
I cooked a big pan of oven baked Pork Chops with pineapple, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder and black pepper. A little carbie but I've been very good
While that was in the oven I cooked 3-4 slices of bacon in a pot, then put in 1/2 a head of cabbage cut up and it was sooo good with the pork chops!
I had leftover eye of round steak that I did in the pressure cooker the other night. On the side, I had the mushrooms that I cooked along with the beef, I turned the broth into gravy, and I nuked a sweet potato with some butter and herbs.
Calamari (squid) rings, pressure cooked in a tomatoey sauce with capers and olives, over tofu shirataki fettucini with lots of chopped fresh parsley.
This was a recipe from an old cookbook using my old stove-top pressure cooker (the kind with a wiggle-valve on top that spit and spewed steam during the cooking process ). I now have an Instant Pot, so played around with time and ingredients .. de-carbed quite a bit, and adding parsley at the end instead of cooking into the sauce to preserve its nice bright flavour. The calamari came out perfect; firm but tender .. not chewy and rubbery .
I'm having the leftovers for lunch .. just tried a little test piece to see how it survived being in the fridge overnight. Excellent .. in fact, the sauce tastes even better with time for all the flavours to mingle.
