Zero Carb Beef Heart and Bacon Stew

As the weather starts to turn chilly once again, my thoughts have been going back towards making stews and casseroles in my collection of  trusty slow cookers.

I love my slow cookers and have far too many for the average single woman. My excuse is that I also have a hungry teenage boy to feed, but in truth he hardly eats anything that comes out of my slow cookers, instead preferring to eat meat plain without any sauces, gravy or juices. This is why he was so willing to learn how to use the halogen oven earlier this year so he could fend for himself a bit more and cook up sausages for a secret midnight feast!

Zero Carb Beer Bottle Cheese and Bacon Burgers

Because we have been used to eating a wide variety of foods with a mixture of different tastes and flavours for so many years before coming to Zero Carb, it can often be a struggle for a newcomer to keep their busy minds happy in the beginning.

The longer you do ZC the more often you are satisfied with very little variety with your meals. However, this is a nice recipe to rustle up when you fancy a treat on a Friday night, or you have curious family members who want to try out Zero Carb for themselves. Along with good old fashioned bacon and eggs, these make a tempting introduction to eating ZC.
