Sweet and sour pork is one of the most popular Chinese-American dishes in the United States. Unfortunately, this simple yet delicious combination of tender pork, vegetables, pineapple chunks and bright red sweet sauce can expand the waistline — but this sweet and sour pork recipe is low-carb, so you can enjoy all the flavors without the guilt. For even fewer carbs, replace the soy sauce with tamari, a soy sauce that contains less wheat.
Instead of deep-fried chunks of pork, our recipe does a simple stir-fry using a small amount of vegetable oil. This allows the flavor of the pork to come through while saving on calories. The usual suspects of bell peppers, sliced carrots and pineapple make this dish as authentic as possible, so don't skimp on them. Not a fan of pork? Make this with chicken breast or thigh meat. The meal is so delicious and easy to make, you might as well throw away the Chinese takeout menu!
