Beef with Mushroom Gravy - 4 net carbs per serving

This is a variation of a dish that I grew up eating. We used to use the normal condensed Cambells cream of mushroom soup. Cambells now has an alternative with much lower carbs. The "soup at hand" (microwavable individual serving) has only 4 net carbs per can. This works almost as well. The recipe is quick and easy. The only problem is figuring out what kind of bread to sop up the gravy with.

2 hamburger paddies or minute steak
1 c. sliced fresh mushrooms
1 can Cambells "Soup at Hand" Cream of Mushroom

On medium heat, brown hamburger paddies or minute steak. Remove from pan. Pour off all but about 2 tablespoons of grease. Saute mushrooms in remaining oil. Once soft, add soup. Cook until gravy darkens. Add cooked paddies or steak. Reduce heat to medium low and cook until thickens and/or meat is heated thoroughly. Serve with low-carb bread or biscuits.

Hi Big Daddy D,

I *just* had the idea recently to take a ton of crock potted chicken, chop it up, dump a ton of stuff in a bit pot like veggies and cream soups and the chicken. It worked great! Slightly carby but still sane. It was fast, easy, and super yummy, and I was able to make a ton of it. I want to figure out how to make cream-of soups from scratch though for less salt and more of 'em.

I think Campbell's quit making the Soup at Hand mushroom. Haven't seen on store shelves for a long time, and it is not listed on the products page of their website.
