Introduction

A family meal in a pot, at 420 calories per serving, with a tangy sweet sauce based on Kansas City style BBQ sauce. Lower the calories by choosing a lower calorie pasta sauce or low sugar catsup) The stevia replaces sugars (1/4 cu molasses and 1/4 c.brown sugar and 1/4 c. honey!) in the original sauce recipe I based mine on. Any sugar including honey could replace the maple syrup. Liquid smoke and worcestershire are other possible flavor additions for more BBQ tang, as is lemon juice or more vinegar. You have to mess around with it to get it to suit. Or you could, of course, just dump your own favorite commercial brand of BBQ sauce in, but where's the fun in that?

Ingredients

    2 med onions, halved and sliced very, very thin
    2 med potatoes (any kind) peeled, cut into bite sized pieces
    5 very thin or 2 fat carrots, sliced bite sized
    1 large Granny Smith apple with peel, cut into bite sized pieces
    Sauce:
    4 cloves minced fresh garlic
    1 cup catsup or tomatoe pasta sauce
    1/4 cup yellow or dijon mustard
    1/4 cup cider vinegar
    1/2 cup maple syrup or other sweetner
    3-5 packets stevia, to taste

Directions

For 10 servings (estimated 1-cup each although I must admit I did not actually measure ) count 420 calories each, a complete meal although a simple salad with vinagrette on the side would be nice. Prepare the vegetables and fruit and cut into bite sized pieces. Mix them together and place in the crock pot. Trim and cut each boneless country style pork loin rib into 3 or 4 stew chunks, removing visible fat. Place on top of the veggies in the crock pot. Mix together the sauce ingredients including garlic minced fine. Pour on top. No need to stir. Just put the lid on and cook on high for at least four hours, or on low for 7 or 8 hours, or until meat is done and vegetables are too. Slow cookers vary; mine is a 30- year-old Rival classic so go by your own manufacturer's guidelines for "stews."
