Braised Beef & Mushrooms -- the tender, slow-cooked beef absorbs the wonderful taste of the mushrooms, which completely permeate the sauce. Saute in olive oil, and use 3 pounds of beef to serve 12. Works for D-Burn (use shiitake mushrooms) and Phase 3. Omit the tomato paste for P2 (use stew meat, saute in broth) and H-Burn (season with oregano and dill).

Mushroom Overload Egg White Omelet - that's 5 ounces EACH of shiitake and oyster mushrooms (we had to convert from grams -- the recipe's Canadian) -- definitely enough for 2, with 6 egg whites! Cook in a nonstick skillet without oil for Phase 2.
