For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

If you prefer you can use chicken instead of pork, and you may need to experiment with the quantities of chilli.

Remember if you wish to eat this on an SP day to serve it with other S or P foods, and not with rice.

We like things a bit spicy so we add a decent pinch of chilli flakes to to our Syn Free Salt and Pepper Pork to give it a bit of a kick.

We use Sukrin 1 which is an all-natural granulated stevia sweetener alternative to sugar with zero calories. You can grab Sukrin 1 over onAmazon UK.

Sukrin 1 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 Salt and Pepper 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 Salt and Pepper Pork recipe.

Should I Syn the sweetener in this Syn Free Salt and Pepper Pork?

As you will probably know last year Slimming World brought out some new recommendations regarding the syn value of granulated sweeteners. This means that:

Where there is 1 tbsp or more being used per serving they recommend you count 0.5 Syn per tbsp. If using smaller amounts, like a pinch or teaspoon, there’s no need to worry about Syns at all.

The recipe for this Syn Free Salt and Pepper Pork uses 1 tablespoon of sweetener for the entire Salt & Pepper Seasoning. The recipe  is divided into 4 portions. That’s less than 1 tablespoon per portion, so there’s no need to add any syns on for the sweetener itself.

For the Spice Mix
  1. Toast the salt flakes in a hot pan until they start to brown - it's very important to do this to get the true salt and pepper flavour
  2. Mix the toasted salt and all the other spice mix ingredients together
For the Salt and Pepper Pork
  1. Coat the pork evenly with the spice mix, then refrigerate for an hour or so to allow to marinate. You can do this in advance
  2. Heat a few sprays of low calorie cooking spray in a frying pan
  3. Add the pork, onion, peppers and garlic and fry until the pork is almost cooked through
  4. Add the Soy Sauce and Rice Vinegar and let is simmer for a couple of minutes, stirring to make sure everything is coated
  5. Once the pork is cooked remove from the heat and serve with rice and stir fried vegetables

  1. This is brilliant! So tasty and even better than a take away I think. Didn’t use the MSG so don’t know how much of a difference that would make but I’m happy to leave it out. Thank you, certainly sorted my Chinese fix!

  2. Just made this using finely sliced chicken breast and substituted the rice vinegar for apple cider vinegar. Chucked it all in the Actifry for 15 minutes. Added soy and vinegar 3 mins before the end. Was pretty amazing! Cheers Pinch of Nom!

    1. Hi Holly
      We haven’t tried freezing this recipe, but it should be ok. Make sure that it’s cooked and fully cooled before you freeze it.

    1. Hi Louise,
      I think in this instance ground black pepper would be too harsh. I’d try to get hold of some white pepper if you can for best results. 🙂

  3. Hi, Have just made this dish and have to say it was lovely except very salty. I used all the spice mix but having just checked out the salt and pepper chicken I am now wondering if I should have only used some of the spice mix?

    1. Hi Gill
      You can certainly use less of the spice mix if you prefer a less salty version of Salt & Pepper Pork.
      Thanks for getting in touch!
