Here is a diabetic recipe beef dish that rivals the Roasted Peppers Stuffed with Yellow Squash and Rice vegetable dish. It comes from the “Fix-It and Forget-It Diabetic Cookbook” via Lois Stoltzfus from Honey Brook, Pennsylvania. This diabetic recipe is a simple, complete meal within itself and is easily done in the slow cooker. My whole entire family loves this diabetic recipe, INCLUDING…my 14 year old son who hates vegetables! Try this one out with your family and see what they think.
