Sweet pork, cheese, veggies, and sauce on a wheat tortilla

Sweet Pork normally contains loads of sugar, making a big impact on people living with diabetes. Try this recipe for a very low-carb version that tastes so good, only your blood sugar will notice the difference! 

Sweet Pork. Need I say more? I will anyway so you can know how to make it low-carb and low-fat at home. Regular sweet pork is darker and has more of a glaze due to loads of brown sugar. We don't have that with this, but it's juicy, tender and SO sweet. It's delicious, and you won't miss the regular brown sugar because the Splenda brown sugar is such a fantastic substitute. And my family said they couldn't taste much of a difference between this and my regular sweet pork recipe. Yep, it's a keeper!
