Sweet and Sour Pork III

1000 folks tried Sweet and Sour Pork III on AllRecipes.com and I agree with their high rating.  There’s quite a few steps but it’s worth the effort.  To healthify it, I only use enough Oil in a PFOA-free pan to sear the Pork.   I add more colourful veggies and replace some of the Sugar with Erythritol and Green Stevia…no one was the wiser.

If you like umami, add a touch of Fish Sauce when seasoning the meat.  For more heat, add minced Jalapeno Pepper.

Serve over Chinese Rice Pilaf, garnish with toasted Sesame Seeds and Cilantro.

Black Bean Chicken offers a really unique taste from a very simple marinade.   You can find these pungent, fermented Beans at oriental grocers or in the international section of your big chain stores.  Both brands below are under 4 bucks.  A little goes a long way.
