Updated: Sep 22, 2020
With a little bit of planning, this can be a SUPER easy dinner for any night!
Minimal clean up.
This delightful meal is a pulled pork cabbage bowl topped with peach salsa & pickles. SO flavorful!
Here’s what you need to make it:
🔘3 lbs of pork roast (be sure to get pasture raised or organic)
🔘1 whole onion, thinly sliced
🔘1 tbs of sea salt
🔘1/2 tsp of black pepper
🔘1 tsp of garlic powder
🔘1 tbs of paprika
🔘2 tbs of coconut sugar (or honey or maple syrup)
🔘2 tsp of coconut aminos or soy sauce
🔘2 tsp of Dijon mustard
🔘2 tbs of apple cider vinegar
🔘1 12 oz package of organic coleslaw mix/shredded cabbage
🔘Bread & butter pickles (check ingredients for unnecessary additives)
🔘Peach salsa (purchased pre- made. If that’s not an option, cut up peaches & marinate them in lime with cilantro & small jalepeño slices)
Then to cook, you just...
🔘Place the onion at the bottom
🔘Mix the dry ingredients and rub all over roast
🔘Mix liquid ingredients & pour over roast
🔘Cook in low for 8-10 hours (before you leave for church) OR on high for 4 hours (when you get home)
🔘Then serve on top of the cabbage & top with the pickles and salsa!
Is pork healthy? Pork IS one of the foods God specifically commands Israel not to eat...
Of course, under the new covenant, all food is permissible. Interestingly, God’s food laws in Leviticus were given because not everything was beneficial.
Pigs process their food in the same way we do. Essentially, they are what they eat. Pigs are omnivores and would eat anything & everything, even animal carcasses.
By avoiding pork, the Israelites avoided consuming a potentially deadly food.
Now a days, pigs are fed a controlled diet. Unfortunately, conventionally raised pigs aren’t fed well and are typically given antibiotics... which ends up in their meat and, in turn, in our bodies. Your best bet for pork is organic or pasture raised, both of which are devoid of harmful toxins from poor diet.
The quality of our foods make all the difference!
See if you’ve got a local farm or health food store that can offer you those options!
