Perfect New Years Dish: Easy and Low-Fat Beefy Hoppin John

December 30, 2009


Beefy Hoppin John is perfect for New Year’s Day. I developed this recipe for Laura’s Lean Beef, and it’s only 318 calories per serving and 4 grams of fat per serving. It’s really simple to prepare with only 10 minutes of preparation time. Please excuse me for not supplying a picture of the recipe, but my camera and computer has been on the blink this week.
