Sorry for my absence, I have been trying some new things and trying to really focus on doing well on Keto.
Corned beef is great for Keto for it’s high fat content, plus its delicious. It does take a while to cook though.
What You Need:
- Corned beef thickly sliced.
- 1/4th of a medium jicama
- 2 eggs
- onion powder
- garlic powder
What to do (corned beef):
- Either purchase corned beef cooked from your local deli or purchase a full one and cook ahead of time. Takes some time but it isn’t too difficult. Fill a pot with water enough to cover the roast and season. Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 1 hour for every pound of meat you have.
- Once you have let your corned beef rest for 40 minutes or so you can slice (against the grain) and store how you like and have it available for breakfast or meals.
What to do Breakfast:
- Take your jicama, peel and slice into small thin slices.
- Bring a pot of water to a boil, enough to cover your jicama.
- Boil the jicama for 10 to 12 minutes. Once softened strain the jicama and pat dry with paper towels.
- Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat and then add your jicama sticks along with all the listed seasonings.
- Once you have your jicama cooking you can pull out a pan and begin heating over medium high heat for corned beef. The jicama takes time to get crisp so don’t start the corned beef too soon.
- The corned beef just needs to be warmed and crisped a little, so put it in the pan and cook until you are satisfied.
- Once the corned beef and the jicama are close to being finished you can heat up a pan and heat a small tab of butter, enough to coat your pan. fry your eggs to your preference.

I have recently been experimenting with jicama, it works as a wonderful substitution for potato, as french fries and here as hash browns. I recommend frying for a good amount of time. The boiling is necessary to cook it thoroughly but can leave it mushy if not cooked until crisp.
