Barbecued Pork:

2 lbs. boneless pork top loin
1 c. chopped onion
3/4 c. diet soda
3/4 c. barbecue sauce

Combine all ingredients in a crockpot. Cook covered on high for 5-6 hours or until meat is very tender. Drain and slice or shred pork.
Makes 8 servings at 4 points each.
I serve it on wheat buns that are 2 points


Beef Stew
My family and I have been enjoying this recipe for years now, I have always used round steak because it is leaner than stew meat and much more tender. It was a shock when I punched it into Mastercook and it told me it was 3 points for a cup!

1 lb of round steak, fat trimmed, and cubed
3 cups of water
2 packages lipton Onion soup mix
24 ounces of potatos
2 large onions
1 pound of baby carrots cut in half
4 stalks of celery chopped
12 ounces of mushrooms (washed and stems off if desired)
1 tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon of cold water until smooth.
salt and pepper to taste.
Throw all but the cornstarch mixture in, and cook all day. Add the cornstarch mixture about an hour before eating.
I make biscuits to go with it for my husband and son, for myself, I take a wheat bun and toast it in the toaster and serve the stew over it. This is Very Hearty and filling. It fills a 3 qt crockpot, which is 12 cups. Mastercook has given it the value of 1 cup equals a serving for 3 points. If you want to add the points, I sometimes substitute half the water for beer. Enjoy!
