Healthy Dish For The Weak: Slow-Cooked Ginger Pork.

A few weeks back I discovered the ancient crock pot from the 1980s hidden in back of a cabinet in the kitchen of this cottage rental.  I was in heaven! I had neglected having my slow cooker shipped with my few essentials (coffee machine, Nespresso machine, wine, shoe collection, bag collection...) here.

I used my discovery to improvise a pork tenderloin recipe.

1 pork tenderloin (about a pound)
1 white onion, quartered
1 inch of ginger
5 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons of fish sauce
1/2 cup of coconut aminos
1 1/2 cup of beef broth (you could use chicken broth)

  1. Put the onion in the slow cooker.
  2. Place the pork tenderloin on top of it.
  3. Puree the ginger, garlic, aminos, and fish sauce in a blender.
  4. Pour the puree over the pork, then pour in the broth.
  5. Slow cook for about 8-9 hours on Low.

When pulled out of the slow cooker, it easily falls a part. I used it for mini tostadas that I topped with guacamole.

I don't understand why everyone does not own one of these things. Slow cookers are the best!
