Wednesday’s “Daily Delicious” is best described by the first line of the blog post in which it is featured, at TGIPaleo.com: If delicious Mexican food and Asian food had a baby, what would you get?
Simple: Asian-style Carnitas!
This is a crockpot recipe, that gives traditionally spicy carnitas a unique Asian flair.
Ingredients include pork shoulder, sesame oil, garlic, rice vinegar, ginger, chives and coconut aminos (Paleo soy sauce — minus the soy).
Everything is cooked up on low in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours, and then the carnitas are shredded, and broiled in the oven until slightly crispy.
This blogger enjoyed her carnitas over broccoli and onions, but I think this recipe might be super tasty served on top of Slim Palate’s Cauliflower Tortillas (which I somehow STILL haven’t made!)
I might consider layering the carnitas on the cauliflower tortillas with some shredded lettuce or cabbage, some chives, maybe some sliced almonds, and some sort of a Paleo Asian dressing — perhaps Melissa Joulwan’s (of TheClothesMakeTheGirl.com) delicious-looking and popular “Sunshine Sauce,” which I also still haven’t made!
