Here is a Diabetic Recipe that doesn’t suck.  Check it out.  I found it on DLife.com.

 

Directions

1 Chop beef into 1 inch cubes.
2 Combine beef, onion, garlic, bay leaves, and 1/3 cup water in a 6 quart pot and boil over high heat, cover, lower heat, and continue to boil for 20 minutes.
3 Remove lid, raise heat while continuing to boil and stirring frequently about 10 or 15 minutes. Juices will evaporate and a dark brown film will form.
4 Stir in broth, 1/3 cup sherry, and almonds. Scrape brown film from sides and mix in. Return to a boil.
5 Place lid back on, lower heat, and simmer 1 hour.
6 Mix in olives. Place lid back on and simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Beef should be form tender.
7 Continue to boil until liquid is reduced to 1 cup. Mix the rest of the sherry with cornstarch and pour into pan. Bring to a boil.
8 Remove from heat, spoon into serving bowl and scatter parsley over.

Additional Information

Any kind of beef can be used for this. Also, try pork.
