Sweet & Sour Pork

Low Carb Sweet & Sour (Pork, Chicken, or Shrimp)

We love Sweet & Sour at our house, but it often is high is sugar and carbs. So I played with several recipes and came up with one that my family loves. We removed the heavy breading and cut the sugar by using Truvia. We also serve it over Cauliflower Rice.

Ingredients

20 oz can Pineapple Chunks, drained reserving the liquid
3 cups Peppers (Green, Yellow, and/or Red)
1 cup Onion
1 cup Carrots
1 1/2 – 2 lbs Meat (Pork, Chicken, or *Shrimp)
1/2 cup Flour
1/4 cup Olive Oil

SAUCE INGREDIENTS
3/4 cup Truvia One Sugar Blend
1/2 cup Sugar
3 T Cornstarch
1 tsp Chicken Flavor Instant Bouillon
1 cup Liquid (Pineapple Juice + Water)
1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Vinegar
1/4 cup May Ploy Chile Sauce
1 tsp Minced Garlic

Directions

Dice peppers and onions into bite sizes pieces. Slice Carrots into 1/4 inch disks.

For Pork or Chicken, Cube meat if pork or chicken. Add flour to a zipper bag followed by the meat. Toss until the meat is coated. Add oil to wok or large skillet. Cook over medium high heat and cook completely. Add in vegetables, and pineapple until heated thoroughly heated.

In a medium saucepan combine sugar, Truvia, cornstarch, and bouillon. Add remaining sauce ingredients. Cook and stir over medium high heat until thickened and bubbly. Pour over meat and vegetables.

*For Shrimp use cooked, peeled and with tails removed. If fresh add with the vegetables, if frozen add to the sauce  as soon as the sauce is complete.
