Recipe Notes

*Use extra lean ground beef while on Phase 2 of the HCG Diet (10% fat or less). For this recipe, we used 93/7 percent ground beef and it was delicious.

**While on the HCG Diet you should always mince fresh garlic, rather than pre-minced garlic from the grocery store. Most pre-minced garlic contain preservatives. To be on the safe side... mince your own fresh garlic cloves for the best possible weight loss.

***Not all garlic powders and onion powders are safe for Phase 2 of the HCG Diet. Check the ingredients and avoid anything containing sugar, starches, oils, preservatives, and words ending in -ose, -tol, or -dextrin.
