Julia's Notes
* I crushed the rosemary
** I put the mushrooms and flour in a large ziploc bag and tossed, get much better coverage that way.

A while back someone posted a BBQ sauce recipe and I use it all of the time now.

1 12oz can diet coke
1 Cup Ketchup

Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer until it thickens.
Man! Is this ever gooooooooood! I usually throw some chicken or hamburger in there. I also throw in some Worcestershire sauce. The whole thing is only 4 points! :D

Marinade/Sauce for Stir-Fry -- 1 pt

Recipe By :Adapted from a Taste of Home " Light & Tasty Magazine" recipe
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/3 cup light soy sauce -- divided
3 tablespoons sugar
4 teaspoons corn starch
1/2 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes -- 1/4 to 1/2 tsp

Marinate up to 1lb. of cut up pork and/or chicken in 2 Tablespoons of the soy sauce.

In a small bowl or measuring cup, stir corn starch and sugar into liquid ingredients with a wire whisk until smooth.

Stir-fry meat in non-stick pan in about 1 tablespoon of oil until done. Remove from pan.

In a bit more oil (up to 1 T), stir-fry lots of assorted veggies. I use a large onion, 1 tsp chopped garlic, 1 large yellow squash, juilienned carrots, etc.

Stir meat back into pan along with marinade/sauce over med-high heat. The sauce will thicken up nicely.

Serve over 1 cup of rice.

Points will vary depending on how much oil and meat you use. The sauce itself adds one point and is well worth it.

(I usually count this as follows: 3 pts meat,1-2 pts fat, 1 pt sauce, 0 pts veggies = 5-6 pts (plus 3 or 4 pts rice)
