One of my families favorite meals. This is a low carbed version of sausage and beans in a BBQ sauce.  I've used Mexican Style Hominy (Juanita's) in place of beans in this dish.  The BBQ sauce is one I use often in most any dish that calls for it.  This is higher in carbs than my usual meals, but it has 11 g net carbs if you count net carbs.  In Dr. Bernstein's diet, he suggests counting half the fiber, which would make it higher for those on his diet.  I go by my meter, and this raised me higher than I like, so it's one I'll have to be careful with I guess.  Yet it is very filling and you don't need much to go a long way!  If you want to lower the carbs you could use black soy beans which hardly have any carbs at all.  I stay away from soy so I don't do that.


1/2 cup  shredded carrots
10 ounces  frozen green beans -- (or about 2 cups)
28 ounces  Wright Smoked Polska Kielbasa -- (2 packages) sliced in bite sized pieces.
29 ounces  Juanita's Mexican Style Hominy -- (drained)
3/4 cup  low carb ketchup
1/3 cup  Brown Sugar Twin -- (Brown Sugar)
2 tablespoons  apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon  prepared mustard
1 tablespoon  minced garlic
1 tablespoon  worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon  hickory smoke flavoring
1 teaspoon  onion powder
1 teaspoon  garlic powder

In slow cooker, layer carrots, green beans, smoked sausage, and Hominy.

Combine ketchup, Brown Sugar Twin, vinegar, mustard, garlic, worcestershire sauce, hickory smoke flavoring, onion powder and garlic powder. Whisk together.

Pour over beans.  Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours.  Stir before serving.

  1. Maybe it's the hominy that raised your blood sugar. I also don't do soy. I use black beans sometimes, but they are higher in carbs for sure. Sounds like a tasty, comfort-food type of meal. Have a nice day. :)

    1. Yes, I think even though the hominy is lower carb, it is still making the meal a bit too high carb for me. I have to stay under 12 g. carbs usually if I don't want to see my bg rise too much. It sure is a tasty meal though! My family loves it. If people can do the higher carbs, it's great!

  2. nice posting.. thanks for sharing.
