  • 1 ½ tbsp Lemon juice

  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • ⅓ c Bone broth

  3. Pour the marinade mixture over the steak, and add pepper to taste. Toss to coat well. Marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
  4. Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the steak to the heated skillet, and cook for 5-8 minutes until it is seared well and reaches your desired level of doneness.
  6. While the steak is cooking, lightly blanch the broccoli florets or broccolini for 3-4 minutes, and then rinse under cold water.
  7. When the steak is almost done cooking, add the garlic and cook for an additional 30 minutes.
  8. Mix together the other ⅓ cup of soy sauce, bone broth and 1 tbsp of Swerve brown sugar substitute. You can also add a pinch of xanthan gum to help thicken the sauce mixture. A little goes a long way.

  • 1 (28 ounce) package cocktail sausages, patted dried
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  4. Wrap dough pieces around cocktail sausages and press to seal. Stand sausages up around cake pan. Do not over crowd. Continue placing sausages in the circle until it is as full as desired. If space remains in the middle and you are afraid the sausages might fall over, wad up a piece of aluminum foil and tuck into the middle.
  5. Mix together melted butter and garlic powder. Pour over sausages.
  6. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until the dough is cooked. If the sausages begin to get too dark, loosely tent with aluminum foil.
