This recipe is so easy to make!

Because I have a Lap-Band, I used the SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend in this recipe but if you want or need to avoid all sugar, you may replace it with 3 Tablespoons of the SPLENDA® that measures like sugar (not the packets) and you will need to find a sugar-free ketchup. The nutritional information will need to be changed accordingly.

It is important to begin with very fresh and very lean boneless pork chops. I found a large Family- Pack of 6 chops that weighed 2.30 pounds. When I removed every last bit of fat, I ended up with exactly 2 pounds of lean meat.

Other similar recipes call for the sauce to be cooked and thickened before pouring over the chops but I found that the sauce thickens very nicely on its own without pre-cooking it, thus saving a step and time!

Just a side note: The first time I made this, I forgot the ketchup and it was still delicious.

The Best Turkey Burger-Jeff's Ultimate Recipe
Very Good 4.6/5
(69 ratings)

Moist, delicious, and flavorful turkey burger! The addition of the mayonaise adds a little needed fat to keep it moist, and you can't taste it at all. Great to freeze and have on hand for a quick meal!

A must have at every large get together. This is my daughter's favorite dip, which she has nicknamed "the stuff". It's easy to prepare and always disappears in minutes. Serve this cold and your next party with your favorite baked tortilla chips. Also great with jalape˝os, scallions or avocados.

Carly Rules...My coworker had an awesome recipe that I wanted to try...but of course had to change it up to lower the fat...since I gain 5 pounds just LOOKING at food...
These work out to be 1.5 WW point per shell or 3 points per serving (2 shells).

These tasty burritos are fast enough to make after even the busiest of days...and are great with a green salad on the side...I find they really are best with the smoky, yet robust, flavor of Ancho chili powder, but any will do fine...just adjust the amount as necessary to counteract a potential SU-heat overdose...
