Before I get into the sweet and sour pork, I first have to chat about cauliflower rice. I absolutely love working with cauliflower rice. We use to make our own, but now that it’s trendy to eat cauliflower rice, you can buy it in the freezer section at most grocery stores. We’ve been purchasing the Cascadian Farms brand. Whole Foods also has a similar product, however, it’s made in a shared facility with dairy, so not a good fit for us. When we make cauliflower rice at home (from fresh cauliflower), there’s a much more organic texture about it. The frozen Cascadian Farms package seems to have a somewhat uniform look of square pieces of cauliflower.
So more about this recipe… I was working on a different project when this idea came to me – an allergy friendly sweet and sour pork. First, I thought I would go about it in the tradition way, then I reminded myself of how much I love to go about things totally unconventional. I have yet to see a clean, grain free, version of sweet and sour pork, and set out to make that a reality. When I first served this recipe I was afraid I had gone a bit too far, and no one would like it… They ate it all in one go. I think it’s safe to say this is a delicious recipe 🙂
