Ginger Pork

Ginger pork is a very popular Japanese dish.  This isn't exactly the same since the original recipe is usually stir-fried, but it still has lots of the same flavours and makes a great alternative when cooking your pork roast in the slow cooker.

Ingredients :

-  2 tablespoons of olive oil
-  1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
-  1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
-  1 tablespoon tomato paste
-  1/4 cup of coconut sugar, honey or maple syrup
-  2 tablespoons of freshly grated ginger root
-  1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
-  handful of celery stalks that are mainly leaves (these are usually what is left when you've used the outer stalks.)
-  3 lb pork roast

Directions :
  • Cover the bottom of your slow cooker with the celery stalks.
  • In a heavy skillet, brown the roast on all sides in the olive oil.
  • Remove the roast and put it on top of the celery.
  •  Add the rest of the ingredients to the skillet and deglaze the pan. (Scraping all the brown bits off the bottom.)  Pour this mixture over the roast.
  • Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours.
  • Remove the cooked roast to a platter and let it rest for 15 minutes before carving.
  • Pour the sauce into a saucepan using a sieve to remove the celery.  Allow to simmer on medium heat to reduce while the roast is resting, then serve on the side.
