Syn Free Balsamic Glazed Pork | Slimming World

We do love a bit of Pork sometimes as it’s cheap and super versatile. We decided to pair some Pork Medallions with Balsamic vinegar, onion, garlic, chilli & rosemary & here we have Syn Free Balsamic Glazed Pork.

There is nothing I like more than roasted garlic – oh man, it’s lush. It’s the best way of making garlic into a mellow, smokey flavour.

This Syn Free Balsamic Glazed Pork has bucket loads of it, please don’t be put off by the amount of garlic.

You can even eat the garlic cloves whole when cooked this way. Don’t leave the garlic out, it really makes this dish.

All that onion is extra speed food too, add as much as you like. You could even add some baby carrots, courgette, peppers or even aubergine.

As for Balsamic Vinegar, you can get it from any supermarket. It’ll be along side all the other vinegars & near the oils.

There’s no need to go for the expensive stuff – not unless you want to dip bread in it (which obviously we’re not haha!). The cheap stuff will do nicely!

What is Sukrin Gold?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

We use Sukrin Gold which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to brown sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin Gold over on Amazon UK.

Sukrin Gold doesn’t have that strange after taste that a lot of artificial sweeteners do! It also shares the exact same sweetness and weight to sugar – which makes it really easy to substitute in recipes like this Syn Free Balsamic Glazed Pork.

If you are using a powdered sweetener, then please check how it compares to sugar. In some cases you’ll need to use less, as powdered sweeteners weigh less.

That being said you don’t have to use Sukrin – there are lots of other high quality granulated sweeteners available from the supermarket, such as Canderel Sugarly, and Natvia.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The Rapeseed or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Balsamic Glazed Pork recipe.

The Balsamic Glazed Pork
  1. First coat the pork medallions in the balsamic glaze (see recipe below for recipe) then sprinkle with half of the chopped chillies refrigerate for at least 30 minutes
  2. Pre heat the oven to 200°C
  3. Peel the onion, leaving the root end intact, then cut it into 6 - 8 wedges Peel the shallots and slice them in half lengthways Peel the garlic cloves and slice any larger ones in half lengthways
  4. Place all the veg (including the rest of the chilli and rosemary) in a roasting tray, spray with some Frylight and season
  5. Roast for 20 minutes. While the veg is cooking heat up a frying pan, then sear the pork medallions on both sides (about 2 minutes each side)
  6. Pour in any remaining glaze, then transfer the pork into the tray with the roasting vegetables, return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes until the pork is cooked
The Balsamic Glaze
  1. Put the balsamic vinegar and Sukrin Gold in a pan and bring to the boil
  2. Allow to simmer until the balsamic has reduced by half and it coats the back of a spoon
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. As the glaze cools it will start to thicken up even more, so if it starts to thicken too much just add a small amount of water and stir well. It needs to be the right consistency to coat things. You can store this in the fridge until you're ready to use it

  1. I could do with someone to do my seven day menu planning as I get so confused they say I should be eating way more than what I’m eating and drinking more so any help would be appreciated

  2. I made this and it was gorgeous- will definitely make again. Even my very fussy teenager ate it 🙂 Only drawback was the stink in the kitchen when reducing the balsamic vinegar- even with the extractor fan n full my eyes were streaming! But definitely worth it 😄

  3. I agree it’s lovely. I did another separate dish of roasted veg and served with golden vegetable rice! You need a candle lit later tho. 😄😄😄
