Happy Monday, everyone! I had my first gluten-free oops this week. Here's what I learned: If you are planning to bake bread--and double the recipe--check to make sure that you have all the ingredients first! Crazy substitutions do not always yield good results. The only thing worse than a failed loaf of bread is two failed loaves of bread! I ran out of tapioca starch and substituted corn starch in half the recipe. Either that was the fail, or I didn't add enough salt. Either way, the result was . . . let's just say, less than yummy. I'll be better prepared next time.
Here's a recipe that did not fail. The original recipe for this Sweet & Tangy Slow Cooker Pork comes from Six Sister's Stuff.
Since Six Sisters created the recipe, and I didn't make enough changes to call it my own, I'll let you get it straight from them. I will share my notes, though.
If you buy the correct brands, this recipe is easily gluten free--no substitutions, and no worries. Nice. This recipe calls for ketchup, brown sugar, and honey. Although I'm sure including the full amounts would make the recipe really yummy, I decided to cut the sugar by ⅓. The recipe still tasted very, very sweet. In my opinion, you could cut out even more sugar and not miss it. I also noticed that the recipe, which calls for 6-8 thinly-sliced pork chops, makes a ton of sauce. If you are feeding a large family (or just want leftovers), you could easily add more and have plenty of sauce.
I will definitely make this again!
