New Potato Rendang

I bought a recipe book called the Big Vegan.  I have had it for awhile.  But today I decided to finally try a recipe. This one is  a winner!  I love curry and while this isn’t exactly curry  it is similar.   The recipe describes the dish as Malaysian.  The citrus creates a fabulous flavor to the dish.  This will join my rotation of favorite recipes!  Give it a try.

Island Pork

island-porkIsland Pork is a great meal prep dish.  The pork is cooked in the slow cooker and requires very little prep time.  If you purchase a bag of grated broccoli slaw and carrots all you have to do for the salad is slice some pea pods and whip up a quick vinaigrette.

Servings: 4 ounces
Instructions
  1. For the pork, mix up the spices and oil and then rub all over the pork. Place it in the crock pot and cook on low about 6-7 hours and high about 4 hours. You will know it is done when you can flake it. Flake the pork and let it sit in the juices about an hour before you want to serve it. I like the pork cold for this salad.
  2. For the dressing on the salad mix the last five ingredients into a bowl and whisk until blended.
  3. To assemble use 1/4 of the salad, dressing and pork for each salad.
