Sweet Lime Pork w/ Pineapple Slaw

Jump to Recipe

Rice bowls are so easy and so yummy. You can make them tons of different ways and use all sorts of flavor combinations. They are also awesome for slow cooked meats – because you can just put the meats in the cooker in the morning and make a pot of rice in the evening. Sweet Lime Pork w/ Pineapple Slaw is a fresh and bright topping to any rice bowl.

I like to use the greek yogurt because it gives a nice creamy tang to the slaw. It doesn’t overpower the other flavors in the dressing either. I think it’s important to use fresh pineapple for the slaw. You want it to have the crunch and sweetness not the soft stuff that comes out of a can. If you don’t have access – the can will do in a pinch just try to find the “in it’s own juices” variety and still drain it well.

Slow cooking is not for everyone I realize, but if you haven’t tried it you really should. If you are new to slow cooking, don’t run out and buy the super expensive fancy one with all the buttons. Mine doesn’t even have buttons – just a dial for off, warm, low and high. No lights, no bells, no whistles! Here is the one I have! They don’t have to be fancy to work. And the art of slow cooking is truly simple – you make sure there is enough moisture to sustain the prolonged cook time and you make sure the flavors are bold going in because they will be a little subdued coming out.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
