Ingredients

  • **Pork**
  • 2 lb pork loin
  • 2 tbsp Thai roasted red chili paste suggested brand - Thai Kitchen, likely found in International Isle
  • 1 1/2 tbsp lower sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar sub for brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp mirin or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • **Tacos**
  • 2 heads butter lettuce
  • 2 cups sliced pineapple
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Optional toppings: matchstick carrots finely sliced cucumbers, green onion, fresh basil, chili peppers

Instructions

  • Combine ingredients for pork marinade and mix to combine. Place pork loin in slow cooker and coat with marinade, covering all surfaces if possible. Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours.
  • After pork has cooked, transfer to a cutting board and use two forks to finely shred. Transfer to a large bowl and pour in remaining juices from slow cooker except 1/4 cup (this will be used to roast pineapple).
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place pineapple in a baking pan and sprinkle with 1 tbsp coconut sugar. Pour in remaining 1/4 cup of juice from the slow cooker and roast pineapple for 8-10 minutes. Keep a close eye to prevent burning. Transfer pineapple to a bowl and pour any remaining pan juices into shredded pork (can't let any of the juice go to waste!).
  • To assemble wraps, divide the pork among the lettuce cups and top with caramelized pineapple and optional toppings. Add a spritz of lime juice and serve!
