Paleo Pineapple Pork
It was so easy to make the slow-cooker pork recipe I posted earlier that I went and made 4 lbs of it! Unfortunately (or rather, fortunately), this meant that I had a ton of leftovers.

While the pork is quite delicious to eat straight out of the slow cooker or dipped in some coconut aminos and Paleo Chinese chili sauce (click for recipe), I wanted some other options for taking down this 4 lbs of PIGliciousness!

I used frozen pineapple chunks for this quick and simple recipe, but you can obviously use fresh pineapples instead. Just add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to a saucepan on medium heat and then drop approx. 2 cups of pineapple chunks into the saucepan.

Then add in some shredded pork (approx. 3 cups).

Let it cook for 5 minutes, and then add some freshly grated ginger, minced garlic, chopped cilantro, and salt & pepper to taste.

        I tried it tonight with the civilized caveman’s pulled pork. it was so good. I absolutely love pineapple with pork and the ginger was a nice flavor. I’ve never put those together. The only thing I didn’t add was the cilantro because I think it tastes like soap!! I threw in some fresh basil from the garden instead.
