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.

I received my Lap-band on 5/19/2008. I created this recipe especialy for people who have had bariatric surgery, particularly Lap-band, but it is healthy for anyone to eat.

This is very quick-to-fix. It makes a large and very filling entrée for lunch or supper. If you have had bariatric surgery, cut it in half and save the other half for the next day or a snack later the same day (if your family doesn't gobble it up first)!

Remember to take small bites and chew each bite at least 25 times before swallowing!

This makes a yummy, easy-on-the-tummy soup for a cool Autumn or Winter Day. This is also good pureed for early post-op eating plans.

This delicious alternative to classic pulled pork will be a hit any way you serve it! Serve with Nabisco® Reduced-Calorie Triscuit® Crackers or 1/2 of a small whole-wheat hamburger bun, if tolerated. Nutrition information is not included for these serving options.

If you are in the early post-surgery stages, this can be pureed, also.
