Recipe: Sweet and Sour Meat (E)

Dear Reader,

This is an adaptation of a recipe I got from my mother-in-law. I had originally altered it to make it soy free, as the original recipe called for soy sauce (I have substituted molasses and salt for the soy sauce which sounds weird but it works; if my MIL were dead, she would probably be rolling over in her grave). Now I have altered it again to make it THM friendly. Because I serve it over rice or baked sweet potato, I am calling this an E recipe.

Sweet and Sour Meat

Ingredients:

3 lbs ground turkey

2 cups water

1 c xylitol

1 c cider vinegar

2 tbsp black strap molasses

2 tsp salt

1 tsp ginger

2 tbsp minced garlic

2 tbsp dried minced onion

glucomannan or other thickener

Directions:

1. Brown meat in a large pot.

2. Add remaining ingredients except thickener. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer at least 15 minutes.

3. If using glucomannan, sprinkle 1-2 tsp over the meat mixture while whisking constantly until the mixture begins to thicken. If you are using another thickener (like cornstarch), add it to some cool water and then stir it into the meat, continuing to stir until the mixture thickens.

4. Serve over rice or baked sweet potato.

And here it is:

I would like to say that with three pounds of meat this recipe will even work for those of you with large families, but our family of 6 manages to eat it all in a meal.
