Steak with Pate and Cheese

2 x thinly sliced Beefsteak
1-2oz Ardennes or Brussels pateThinly-sliced Cheddar or other mild cheese

Fry the steak until it's cooked as much as you want (I prefer well done) then remove from pan, spread a thin layer of pate over the cooked steak and top with cheese. Place under the grill until cheese bubbles. Yum. You can also fry some onion with the steak and put it between the pate and the cheese.

Low-Carb Lasagna

30 ounces ricotta cheese
Mozzarella Cheese
Parmesan Cheese
3 eggs
2 1/2 pounds ground beefsalt and pepper
Garlic powder
15 ounces tomato sauce --
1 15 oz can - hunts, no

Take ricotta put in bowl. Add some mozzarella if you want to and add 3 eggs mix well and put aside. Brown ground beef. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and tomato sauce. Taste cause you might need more spices.
Lightly grease a 10x13 pan with butter. Put 1/2 of the meat mixture layered on the bottom. Layer all of the cheese mixture over that, then the remaining meat mixture on the top. Sprinkle top with mozzerella/parm mixture. Actually...I left this top layer of cheese off to try and have less carbs and it was great.
Bake 350 degrees till bubbly...usually about 40-50 minutes.
