Slow Cooker Sunday: Moo Shu Pork

Asian flavors are favorites in our house.  This recipe was adapted years ago from one in Family Fun magazine.  The torn page still serves as my recipe card.  It only takes 10 minutes to prepare: 

1/2 cup hoisin sauce

3 large cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon dark Asian sesame oil

2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 bag (16 ounces) shredded coleslaw

1/2 bag (10 ounces) shredded carrots

1 pound boneless pork loin chops

1 cup chicken, beef, or vegetable broth

Stir together hoisin, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, and cornstarch.  Set aside.

Place coleslaw and carrots into slow cooker.  Cut the pork into 1/4 inch thick slices (slightly frozen pork is very easy to slice thin).  Place on top of vegetables in slow cooker.  Drizzle with 1/2 of hoisin sauce mixture and broth.  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. 

When done, stir in the remaining hoisin sauce mixture.  Serve on warmed flour tortillas.  Garnish with strips of green onions (scallions), if desired. 

We usually pair this entree with some steamed edamame and fresh fruit (or  canned, like pineapple chunks canned in juice).  Enjoy!!
