  1. This sounds delicious! I’ve used sweet potatoes as a base for stir fries before (along with cauliflower “rice”). The seasoning for the meat will complement the sweet potatoes. YUM! Consider it pinned!! :)

  2. Mmmmm! This looks really good! I was planning on trying my hand at once a month freezer cooking, and I bet I could make this work! Will definitely let you know how it goes.

    Talk to me about the chicken broth. What makes the gelatin essential? Does it affect how the sauce coats the meat?

    I’m new to your site, thanks to GNOWFGLINS, and I am loving it! I’m on a similar health journey with my family, and it always does a body good to find someone in the same boat as you. :)

    • Yes, the gelatin from the stock coats the meat. It really is not super necessary but the coating on the meat is fairly luxurious.

      • Ah, I see, good to know! I was worried it wouldnt turn out otherwise, but will definitely use gelatinous broth when I have it. Thank you!

    where do I find pomegranate molasses???

    • I would try ethnic aisles in the supermarket or an indian grocery store. If you can not find it, it is not necessary. First few times I made this I did not use it.
