|Here's How I Took the Carbs|
Out of Hubby's Favorite
Last night, I decided to make my high-carb authentic Sweet-and-Sour Pork recipe that I've been using for years -- Atkins-friendly.
It was my first attempt at using Carbquik Baking Mix in this particular recipe, and turned out great.
Carbquick is a low-carb baking mix that is similar to Bisquick. Unlike the Sweet-and-Sour Pork you'll find at one of those fast food oriental places, the pork balls don't come out really hard and crispy. You aren't using cornstarch in this, so they come out softer, which is exactly what hubby has to have because he doesn't have any bottom teeth.
At 7 net carbs per serving, the softness that Carbquick brings to this oriental classic is an acceptable compromise.
