Easy Weeknight Paleo CrockPot Recipe: Asian Pork Lettuce Wraps




One of the things I missed most when I first went Paleo was the ability to throw a chunk of meat in the crock pot, cover it in sauce, serve in on a freshly baked roll and call it dinner.  Most pre-made sauces are loaded with sugar and since I no longer eat anything on a bun, my crockpot gathered a bit of dust while I transitioned.  But when I rediscovered my love for lettuce wraps (HOLY MOSES those are good!) I busted out my crockpot again and sang love songs to it because it makes my weeknight life so much easier. 

After a few trials and tribulations, and some super disgusting dinners (which, HELLO, seem like an extra betrayal when they happen in the crockpot because you come home expecting dinner to be ready only to find out that you have to figure out a Plan B!)  I finally came up with a a combo of yummy flavors that has found its way into the regular rotation in our kitchen.  And a bonus, it gets Garrett to eat pork with a smile!  Although you could certainly substitute chicken in this dish and get great results.  

Asian Pork Lettuce Wraps  

For the chunk of meat
2-3 lbs of pork shoulder or any type of pork roast (or this would be super good with chicken thighs or chicken breasts)
Liberally salt and pepper and if you're feeling really crazy throw in 3-4 smashed whole garlic cloves.  If you don't feel crazy, just sprinkle on some garlic powder

For the sauce
Mix all of the following:
4 TBS Coconut Aminos (or Soy Sauce if that's your bag)
2 TBS Almond Butter  (Peanut Butter would be fine too)
1 TBS Honey  (I eyeball it)
2 TBS Vinegar (I've used a bunch of different ones, just to get some acid in there)
2 tsp Sesame Oil
1 TBS Sriracha (or more if you are real spicy)
1/2 tsp of Black Pepper
1 TBS minced ginger  (dude, I totally used the jarred stuff sometimes, go for it!)

Recipe Steps
1.  Put prepared chunk of meat in crockpot
2.  Pour sauce over it
3.  Resist the urge to add more liquid (you will want to, don't you worry you don't have to)
4.  Set and forget  (well for about 4-6 hours at least on your low setting)

THIS, internet, is how I like my crock pot recipes.  Short, sweet and tasty!

When it is done cooking shred with a fork and serve atop your favorite lettuce and add the garnish of your choice.  Because I am usually lazy on the weeknights, I throw on some pre-shredded cabbage or broccoli slaw and slice up a bell pepper for some color and call it a day.  You could do any toppings you want -- chopped peanuts, jicama, cilantro, shredded carrots.  And Garrett says don't forget the extra hot sauce!  But that guy is crazy for heat, so take his advice with a grain of salt (and a glass of water!)

Patty said...

Hi Holly! just wanted to thank you for sharing this on Chowstalker, and hope to see more from you soon. How exciting to read that Paleo eating has been so good to you! :-)

Jessica said...

That sounds SO GOOD. I'm not sure if I'll ever get to make it, because every hunk of pork that comes near our house MUST go in my husband's smoker, but maybe he can glaze the pork before smoking it? Or maybe smoke the meat, then let it sit in the crockpot for an hour or so to meld with the sauce?

Kellyology said...

I am super dependent on my crockpot, and this recipe sounds delicious. I'm totally printing it out. Thanks for sharing!

Salinger mamma said...

ooohhh...gonna have to try this one for sure! Sounds delicious. Love my crockpot and love Thai peanut sauce, which the ingredient list reminds me of. Thanks.

Greycat said...

I made this and it was freakin' amazing!!! (I got the link thru http://www.thefoodee.com/) I subbed sweet chili sauce for the honey, though - but it made it even spicier. Thanks so much!

One thing I'd really like to discuss is that weight loss program fast can be achieved by the appropriate diet and exercise. A person's size not simply affects appearance,
but also the general quality of life. Self-esteem, depressive disorder,
health risks, along with physical abilities are damaged
in cess weight. It is possible to do everything right
and at the same time having a gain. In such a circumstance, a
condition may be the primary cause. While excessive food rather than enough exercising are usually responsible, common health conditions and traditionally used
prescriptions might greatly increase size. Thanks a bunch for your post

I have noticed that fees for on-line degree pros tend to be an incredible value.
Like a full College Degree in Communication from The University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits at $515/credit or $30,900.

Also American Intercontinental University Online provides a Bachelors of Business Administration with a total study course requirement of 180 units and a price of $30,560.
Online degree learning has made ng your college diploma been so detailed more than before because you can easily earn your
current degree in the comfort of your home and when you finish working.
Thanks for all the other tips I have really learned from your site.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Thanks for the suggestions shared in your blog.
Yet another thing I would like to convey is that fat reduction
is not supposed to be about going on a celebrity
diet and trying to get rid of as much weight that you
can in a couple of days. The most effective way to shed weight is by getting it
slowly but surely and ng some basic suggestions which can enable you to make
the most from your attempt to shed pounds. You may know and be following many
of these tips, although reinforcing awareness never hurts.

Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this
amazing web-site. Some tips i would advice people is usually to give up the particular mentality that they buy right now and shell
out later. As a society many of us tend to do this for many factors.
This includes family vacations, furniture, and items we really want to have.
However, you need to separate your own wants out of
the needs. While you're working to improve your credit score make some sacrifices. For example you are able to shop online to save cash or you can go to second hand retailers instead of high-priced department stores to get clothing.

Thanks for your publication. I would like to opinion that the very first thing you will
need to do is check if you really need credit restoration.
To do that you simply must get your hands on a replica of your credit history.

That should not be difficult, since government
mandates that you are allowed to have one totally free copy of your actual credit
report annually. You just have to consult the right men and women.
You can either find out from the website with the Federal Trade Commission or even contact one of
the main credit agencies right away.
