    Hi there

    I am trying to come up with a recipe for sweet & sour pork cooked in the slow cooker following EE

    So far I am thinking of browning the port & adding peppers, carrots & onions, tin of pineapple & some soy sauce

    Can anyone think of anything else I could add? also any other slow cooker recipes would be great as I use mine a lot

    cheers

    I don't know if you're accounting for the pineapple having syns, as it's canned? :eek:

    I make a lovely sweet and sour sauce for very little syns, and you don't need to use a lot of it as it's so full of flavour :)

    5tblsp vinegar (any one'll do - i use red wine, but malt etc is fine too :) )
    2tblsp lemon juice (could just use more vinegar if no lemon juice)
    4tblsp tomato ketchup (4 syns)
    4-6tblsp soy sauce
    4-6tblsp splenda (add more or less to taste)

    mix it all together and bung in the slowcooker with the pork - yum yum :) xx

    jbean - I wish I could help you out here but my slow cooker hates me - I have obviously offended it in some way because I put loads of nice things in there, switch it on and then leave the house, when I get back, instead of being greeted by some lovely smelling food I get greeted with vile slop - I don' know what I do wrong because someone else can put the EXACT same things in & their dinner is delicious.....I hate the thing.

    BUT - a friend cooked this for me & it was lovely - I did it in the oven & it ws just as nice, put it in the slow cooker & it was horrible....

    Ginger Spiced Pork

    Black Pepper
    680 Grams Casserole Pork

    Sauce:
    1oz Flour (5 syns)
    1 Level Teaspoon Ground Ginger
    ¼ Teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
    1 tin chopped tomatoes
    4 oz Button Mushrooms
    1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
    2 Tablespoons Splenda Brown Sugar (2 syns)
    2 Tablespoons Vinegar
    2 Cloves Garlic
    1 Bay leaf

    Method:

    Lightly Brown pork in a pan & season well.

    Mix all the other ingredients except mushrooms in a separate pan & heat through until simmering, pour everything into a casserole dish add the pork & mushrooms, cook at 160c for 1 ½ to 2 hours.


    Serves 4
    Total Syns 7 allow 2 syns per serving

    oops I'd forgotten that - ok if I use fresh pineapple though is it or does that count as being stewed ??

    I am trying to keep as low syn as possible but am open to ideas
