Y'all are tormenting me on purpose... .
Yup ... Here's more torment.Y'all are tormenting me on purpose... .
The breaded meats and the squash, that I would risk.Yup ... Here's more torment.
Tri-tip is wife's favorite choice of meat (after Ribeye steak) and during 28 years of marriage, I had to get it perfected ... even the dry rub. I cut the tri-tip in half for more even cooking after trimming the fat off (Trimmed fat is rendered to be used as beef tallow for cooking). I make the dry rub following Santa Maria seasoning with some extra spices and marinate/dry in the refrigerator for several hours to overnight.

It is high temperature cooked (I adjust the heat on my gas grill to 500-600F) turning every few minutes until internal temperature reaches 130F for medium rare (If it gets higher than 140F, wife gets upset that it's too well done). And the cooked meat MUST REST for at least 30 minutes before slicing.

And here's wife's plate with garlic bread made from baguette I baked served with quick butter sauteed squash and mushrooms. Look at those juicy slices that are "melt-in-your-mouth" yummy. (Leftover meat will be used to make Philly Cheese sandwiches later)

I am on Metformin and Glimepiride for Type II DM ... And A1C is "approaching" 7.The breaded meats and the squash, that I would risk.
The rest, my doctor would put me on insulin... .
You just need to increase your steak/meat/BBQ intake supplemented with more butter and eggs then your A1C will be below 7 in no time.My A1Chas gone from around 11 to almost 7, but my doctor keeps threatening me with insulin if I back-slide... .
