I absolutely love cooking with my slow cooker because I don’t have to think about anything. Throw a bunch of ingredients in the crockpot and later on that day you have a delicious meal. This meal is a healthy twist on one of my favorite Asian dishes – Char Sui pork. The pork cooks low and slow for eight hours and turns out incredibly tender and delicious. Eat it on it’s own, with veggies, in lettuce cups, or wrapped up in a low carb tortilla. There are lots of possibilities for this recipe and it makes enough to try them all.
