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.

This recipe calls for the pork to be marinaded for 1-4 hours. I did not include the ingredients in the marinade in the nutritional information because when the meat is removed from the marinade, it is to be patted dry before grilling or broiling.

I used pork medallions for this recipe. I started with 2 pounds. After removing all visible fat, I ended up with 1 lb + 12 oz. After cooking, the pork weighed 1 lb + 3 oz.

Don't waste the trimmings from the meat as there is usually some meat attached. I make stock by boiling the trimmings in water until the meat is done and the fat is mostly melted. Trim away the chunks so that only meat and no fat is left in the stock. Refrigerate it overnight, skim off the fat, label and freeze to be used for soups, stews, etc. later.

You will need the recipe called Bariatric Lynn's Yogurt-Tomato Sauce for this. The nutritional information for the sauce is not included with this recipe.

This is for use with the Bariatric Lynn's Pork Gyros recipe but can also be used for other gyros, Greek salads, etc. It is really good and gets better over the next couple of days in the refrigerator.

Greek yogurt is fat-free and loaded with protein!
