Today’s Menu: Sweet & Sour Pork w/ Sliced Chestnuts, Mini Carrots, and Diced PineappleLachoy Sweet and Sour pork 004

 

 
Woke up to a Winter Wonderland this morning! A fresh 3 ” on the ground and more to come. So what better way to warm up on the inside than a big serving of Sweet & Sour Pork w/ Sliced Chestnuts, Mini Carrots, and Diced Pineapple. With everyone healthy, hibernating, and hungry I prepared a La Choy Creations Sweet & Sour Chicken Dinner Kit, but I substituted Pork for the Chicken.

 
The dinner kit comes; with 1 can pineapple and red peppers in a sweet & sour sauce, and 1 packet pre-measured long grain rice. I added 1 lb. of boneless Pork Chops (trimmed of fat and cut into 1/2″ pieces), 2 tbsp Canola Oil (for cooking Pork), and 1 1/2 cups water. Boil the rice, fry the Pork in 1 tablespoon of Canola Oil, add your sauces, fix any sides you would like, and serve the Pork on top of the bed of rice. I’ve left the full instructions at the end of the post. It came out delicious! The Sweet &Sour Sauce is just flat out fantastic. It has a perfect blending of spices, pineapple, and red peppers. It makes 5-6 servings and it’s 320 calories and 45 carbs.

 
I used Boneless Pork Chops, purchased from Walmart, that I trimmed the fat from and then cut into 1/2″ cubes. Along with the Sweet & Sour Pork I added 1 can of Sliced Water Chestnuts with the Pork and Sauce and sides of Dole Diced Pineapple, and boiled Mini Carrots. The Pork was just as good, if not better, than the Chicken. Pork and pineapple are a great combo, but what doesn’t go good with pineapple! I’m hooked on these La Choy Creations Dinners! Excellent and filling dinner! I left the original recipe, with the Chicken, below. For dessert/snack later I made some Hidden Valley Ranch Chip Dip using 1 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Mix and Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream. I used Ruffles Light Fat Free Chips.
