Polynesian Pork Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Polynesian Pork which belongs to the Pork and Lamb recipe category.
- 4 or 5 large pork chops, 1 to 1 inches (2.5 to 4 cm) thick
- cup (120 ml) soy sauce
- 4 cloves garlic, crushed
- cup (8 g) Splenda
- teaspoon blackstrap molasses
- 1 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
Preheat the oven to 325F (170C, or gas mark 3).
Put the pork chops in a large resealable plastic bag.
Combine the soy sauce, garlic, Splenda, molasses, and ginger, mixing them in a blender for a second or two if possible.
Reserve some marinade for basting, and pour the rest into the bag with the pork.
Seal the bag and let it sit for 20 minutes or so, turning once.
Remove the pork from the marinade.
Place the chops in a shallow roasting pan and bake for 60 to 90 minutes or until cooked through.
Brush once or twice with the reserved marinade, using a clean utensil each time.
4 or 5 servings
If you were to eat all the marinade, each serving would have 7 grams of carbohydrates, but you don't, so figure 2 or 3 grams of carbohydrates, a trace of fiber, and 25 grams of protein. This marinade works well with a pork roast, too, but of course it will take longer to roast.
