Ingredients
  

  • 2 lb boneless pork roast

  • 1-2 tsp chili paste or sriracha
  • 2 tbsp ginger I love The Ginger People minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
Garnish:
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Shred carrots and cut cucumber, put in jar of choice (I use a Ball Canning jar), pour rice vinegar, water, and sesame oil in, and shake to distribute. Let sit in fridge while meat cooks so the veggies can pickle.
