My husband and I have been super busy lately, so I’ve been working on ways to make meals quicker and more convenient. Slow cooking is awesome for this, as we can drop a few ingredients into the pot in the morning and come home to a meal. These Slow Cooker Asian Pork Steaks were a total hit and ridiculously simple to make. My husband devoured his bowl and just kept exclaiming how much it tasted like chinese food from a restaurant. To make things even easier on us whenever I make them I prep the ingredients & sauce the night before, so it’s as simple as dropping everything in the pot and pressing a button in the morning. I don’t know about you, but I don’t do mornings, so any shortcuts I can take the better.
We absolutely love pork steaks. Cut from the shoulder, they are relatively inexpensive but full of flavor since they have some extra fat. We like them over cauliflower rice with steamed broccoli and green beans. If you aren’t following AIP or have reintroduced them successfully add some red pepper flakes for an extra kick.
