I have to make some cabbage rolls for a potluck dinner next weekend.  I thought that I would make a small batch of a Dr B approved recipe for myself.

This is my idea
Yves ground round
shirataki noodles cut up to replace the rice
approved beef bouillon cube
dehydrated onion
all sauteed in beer ( is that legal, that is the secret ingredient)
Wrapped in cabbage
covered in hunts tomato sauce sweetened with liquid sweetener

What do you think?  and ideas?

All but the beer sounds good. I know beer isn't on the allowed food list.

I was hoping that the bad stuff from the beer would cook off, but you are probably right.  Thanks Carol

The alcohol from the beer would cook off, but the carbohydrate wouldn't.  A low carb no-alcohol beer (if there is such a thing) would minimize the problems, but even that would be "off diet".

Also watch the tomato sauce.  It isn't treated as a vegetable -- it is limited (see the food list).  I made that mistake once long ago.

Oh yeah, I really like the idea of cutting up the shirataki noodles as rice and think it will work very well in that role.  I had been meaning to try that myself at one point.  The consistency will be a little different, but in the way you're proposing I think it would be perfect.

Thanks for the help Brian.

I know when low carb items started to really take flight a few years ago there were a couple low carb beers made by the big Canadian beer companies.  No idea if they still produce them or not, but as Brian said it would still be "off-diet".  

I think the idea is quite intriguing nonetheless.  I would be willing to try it out, minus the beer additive :).
