Ingredients

Low Carb Turkey a la King

  • ¼ cup butter
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • ½ lb mushrooms
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • ½ lb green beans

Optional

Instructions

Equipment Needed

Directions

  • Wash the veggies including the mushrooms then chop the onion, celery, green pepper and mushrooms.
  • Melt butter in a saucepan and once hot, add the onion, celery, green pepper and mushrooms. Mix in the pepper and salt and cook until the onion is translucent and the mushrooms have browned.
  • Chop the turkey, mince the garlic, trim the green beans and cut them into 1" pieces. Mix all three into the mushrooms and stir, then pour in the warmed cream and chicken stock.
  • Bring to a simmer and reduce for 10 minutes.
  • Serve hot over cauliflower rice, Low Carb Biscuits or 90 Second Keto Bread.

Notes

If you would like a thick sauce, xanthan gum can be sprinkled over top a minute before the Turkey A La King has finished simmering. 

Expert Tips

  1. Mushrooms can carry a lot of dirt, so it is important to wash them thoroughly before chopping them into pieces.
  2. Chop the mushrooms into fairly small pieces - this will allow them to brown faster and better.
  3. Replace the chicken stock with bone stock for an even healthier dish.
