Asian-Sweet-Pork-Salad

The best thing about crock-pot dinners (besides the obvious low-maintenance) is that you usually end up with leftovers. One of the easiest and tastiest things to throw in a slow cooker is meat. The longer it cooks the more tender and flavorful it gets and my favorite for the crock-pot is pork.

Last night we had some salad and Asian Sweet Pork over rice with a little bit of gluten free soy sauce. You could also use coconut aminos (a healthy gluten and soy free alternative to soy sauce) which I am just learning about and will most likely be testing and including in more recipes.

So, with wonderful leftovers like that, what else would I have for lunch today than Asian Sweet Pork Salad!

Asian Sweet Pork Salad

Any kind of salad fixings you like would do – romaine, spinach, cabbage, and/or kale. Topped with matchstick carrots, green onions, chopped almonds, snow peas, unsweetened coconut flakes, chopped fresh basil, etc. 

Dish up some salad, add a helping of sweet pork, and a drizzle of tangy basil-lime dressing!

Sweet Pork:

3-4 lb. Pork shoulder roast

black pepper to taste

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 inch ginger root, grated or 1/2 tsp. ground ginger

1 leak, green end trimmed, chopped

1/4 cup coconut sugar

2 tbsp. lime juice

2 tbsp. gluten free soy sauce or Organic Raw Coconut Aminos

Splash or two chicken or vegetable stock

Tangy Basil-lime Dressing:

1/4 cup oil; sesame seed oil, olive oil, or liquid coconut oil

1/4 cup lime juice + 1/2 tsp. zest

1/4 cup water

2 tbsp. GF soy sauce or coconut aminos

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. onion powder

______

Place the thawed and peppered pork into your slow cooker. Toss in the garlic, ginger, leak, sugar, lime juice, and soy sauce or aminos. Cook it on low for 6-8 hours. If it looks dry after about 4 hours you can add a couple splashes of stock. Shred the pork during the last hour of cooking.

In a jar combine all the ingredients for the dressing, put the lid on, and shake well.

Enjoy!
