about 15 carbs per serving, more if you add other veggies
1/2 cup brown rice has about 22 carbs, so if served with rice, total serving is about 37 carbs.
Cooking time: 35 minutes
3 TBSP Olive Oil
1 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 boneless pork chops, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour)
3 1/2 cups diced tomatoes & juices (8 servings)
2 - 7-oz cans diced green chiles ( NOT hot ones!)
3/4 cup canned chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
(OPTIONAL: add sliced mushrooms and sliced zucchini or other vegetables the last 5 to 7 minutes of cooking time. You don't want them to be mushy, just fork tender!)
Heat oil, add onion & garlic saute' until tender.
Add pork & flour, saute 3 - 5 minutes more.
Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer
Cover partially and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, until meat is cooked & sauce is thickened.
Serve with or over brown rice or instant brown rice.
