This tasty meal is super easy to make, perfect for a busy workday. ┬áIt’s adapted from a recipe I found on one of my favorite food blogs, The Kitchn.

about 3 pounds pork shoulder (also called Boston Butt), trimmed of thick fat
Salt and pepper
3-4 cloves garlic, smashed
1 large piece fresh ginger, about 3 or 4 inches long
1/2 bottle hoisin sauce (use about 7 ounces)

Rub the trimmed pork shoulder all over with salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Put in the slow cooker. Add the smashed garlic cloves, tucking them around the pork. Peel and grate the ginger and put it in too. Pour the hoisin sauce over everything. Cover and cook on low for about 10 hours or overnight.

When finished and tender, use two large forks to shred the meat and mix it with the sauce.

Serve with warm whole wheat tortillas, peanut slaw (recipe below) and plenty of chili garlic sauce.

Peanut Slaw

1/2 medium head green cabbage, outer leaves removed
1/3 cup roasted, unsalted peanuts
1/2 cup chopped cilantro (about one big handfuls unchopped)
Salt and pepper

1/4 cup light oil, like canola
1-2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1/2 to 1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 to 1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce

Shred the cabbage very finely. Toss with the peanuts in a large bowl. Toss the chopped cilantro with the cabbage, seasoning very lightly with salt and pepper.

Whisk the dressing until emulsified, then taste and adjust to your own preferences of sweetness and saltiness.
