Paleo Sweet and Sour Pork
February 20, 2015
This is another one of my slow cooker favourites. The great thing about this sweet, and sour pork is there isn’t a drop of refined sugar. The sweetness comes from yellow peppers, and pineapple. The taste is stunning, and the meat is nice and tender. What’s not to like.
2 Pork chops
2 tbsps Passata
2 tbsps Stock
1 small yellow bell pepper
1 cup of chopped pineapple
1 tbsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Chilli powder (depends how hot you want it) or you can use fresh chilli.
1 hp tbsp Paprika
Switch your crock pot to high, and add 25g of lard, Let it warm and melt the lard.
Heat a frying pan and add the other 25g of lard. When preparing the pork chops, I like to cut off the rind, as this goes weird in the crock pot, and save if for making scratchings with. Then sear them in a hot pan for about 1 minute either side. Put them straight into the crock pot.
Next, add your spices, passata and stock. Mix up the ingredients, and cook on high for 3 hours. Next add your chopped bell pepper, and turn to low. 15 minutes before you are ready to serve, add your chopped pineapple.
