ASIAN "SLOPPY JOES"
1 pound ground beef
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda

Although the flavor of this is good, it's a little too salty. Unless I can think of a way to cut the saltiness, I have to give this a low rating. If you serve it over 2 ounces of iceberg lettuce per serving, there is no change in the net carb count.
