After having lived in the south for nearly a decade pulled or shredded pork has become a staple in our household. Mixing up the flavors for a simple shredded pork made this recipe a welcome choice to check out.
We like to buy our meat in bulk, portion it out and freeze it to use whenever we need it. I'll normally pick up an entire pork loin and break it down into two pound roasts, so when prepping this dish I don't think it even took me half the prep time.
When I was shopping for the rest of the ingredients I picked up a bag of broccoli slaw, rather than some carrots. I mixed the diced green onions in with the slaw then tossed together with a few ladle fulls of the cooking liquid. Also, being diabetic, tortillas tend to wreck havoc on my blood sugar. So rather than serve the pork in them I picked up some butter lettuce and made wraps instead.
The tender pork, flavorful sauce and the crunch from the water chestnuts and shredded vegetables was a fun and satisfying meal.
