Shredded Beef Crockpot Sandwiches

You'll think you're ordering at the counter of a great roadside BBQ joint. But the simplicity of crockpot cooking makes this a dish you could make at home as often as you like.

I'm anxious to try this recipe as it has NO TOMATO. Not important for most people but I am allergic to tomatoes. Will try with whole wheat buns instead of white to help with blood sugar spikes. Thanks.

I rate this recipe as deceptive. Add in a bun and the nutritional numbers, especially the carb load, changes a lot. Also, why don't you ever show sugars under the carb heading? It's as important as sodium. Most of the recipes don't show sugars.

1) Skip the buns. Buns are totally high in carbs and will spike your blood sugar.
2) With respect to the comment on sodium, use a good sea salt or Himalayan salt. The problem with table salt is it is NaCl and no other salts to balance and it's the lack of balance that causes the problem. Too much sodium and not enough of other salts such as potassium. Only about 1/3 of the population is bothered by this imbalance regardless. Sea Salt will provide balance.
Serve your yummies over riced cauliflower which is higher in nutrition than bread and very low in carbs.
Other than that, the recipe looks great! Add some cinnamon and cumin to help control blood sugar. Both are great for that. I believe cassia or Ceylon cinnamon and the black cumin are best so be sure to get the spice from a good health food store that knows the difference. This works for type II diabetes only.

Sounds great, but I need to leave out salt and use Mrs. Dash, which lowers sodium oontent for me. But am sure your recipe will be just as great. thanks
