Looking for a super easy weeknight dinner that you can throw together in the slow cooker and enjoy for days to come? This pork is bursting with flavor - it’s sweet, spicy, smoky and makes for amazing tacos. You could also serve it over rice or veggies for a tasty bowl and lower-carb option!
1/2cupthick bbq sauce of choiceI used True Made Foods lower sugar bbq sauce
1-2tspchili paste or sriracha
2tbspgingerI love The Ginger People minced ginger
Cabbage or slawshredded (can toss with a little apple cider vinegar for extra kick)
Lime wedgesfor garnish
Combine sauce ingredients and adjust spice level to your preference
(Optional) reserve 2 tbsp sauce for topping tacos
Put pork roast in slow cooker, cover in sauce, cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-7 hours. Should be tender. If there’s not enough liquid, add some chicken broth or@water (about 1/2 cup). 4. 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.
Once meat is done, cut into strips (roughly 2 inches long) or shred with a fork, put in tortilla and top with shredded cabbage and pickled veggies + scallion and sesame seeds. Garnish with extra sauce and a squeeze of lime and enjoy!
