LOW CARB Ground Beef and Mushroom Skillet

Barbara Scott


Low carb diets can get old after a while and it's sometimes difficult to come up with something different. The only thing in this recipe with any real carbs is the tomato sauce. Even though I'm the one on the diet, my family asked for seconds. We ate it with a spoon as a stew.

I forgot to take a picture of it but will do so the next time I make it.
