One of the many reasons I love Gardein is that they make it possible to have plant-based Asian food right at home that’s easy to make and is delicious! Sweet and Sour pork used to be one of my favorite Chinese food dishes, and now I can enjoy that flavor once again.
I have to admit I was a little skeptical of these Sweet and Sour Porkless Bites at first because just from the picture on the bag they look puffy like the Gardein Home Style Beefless Tips which is not in my top faves.
As soon as I took a bite of the cooked Porkless Bites from my plate, all that skepticism disappeared. These Porkless Bites are a good way to transition from eating real pork. For a plant-based version of sweet and sour pork, these bites are pretty darn delish and they have 13g of protein per serving which is awesome!
To mimic the Chinese restaurant experience, I added some carrots, onions, and red pepper to my Sweet and Sour Porkless Bites. So good! The sauce comes in a separate packet so if you do not like the sauce that comes with the bites or you want to try another sauce like an orange sauce or Peking sauce, you can totally do that.
