So we’ve done a traditional pulled pork recipe already, but you can never get enough pulled pork! This one is even leaner for those of you prioritizing lean proteins in your diet. Our Chili Lime Pulled Pork is made with pork tenderloin and is a winner with roasted sweet potatoes and a side salad or serve in a baked potato or with rice to mix it up a bit!
Chili Lime Pulled Pork (serves 6):
1000g Pork tenderloin
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
juice of 1 lime
2.5 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp crushed chili peppers
1/2 tsp ground ginger
a pinch each of salt and pepper
2 tbsp corn starch
1) Season the pork with salt and pepper. Heat a large pan with coconut oil over medium high heat and once hot, brown the pork loin on both sides until lightly charred.
2) Combine the honey, lime juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire, garlic, chili and ginger in a bowl. Put the pork in the slow cooker and top with marinade. Cook for 6 hours (I turned the loins occasionally but you don’t have to) over low heat. Take the pork out and let cool before shredding the meat.
3) Pour the leftover liquid from the slow cooker to a small sauce pan. Heat should be medium, combine cornstarch with 2 tbsp water and then pour into saucepan. Cook on low until thickened then take off the heat. Finally put the shredded pork back into the slow cooker, add the sauce and combine. Serve with a side of potatoes or rice, a side of greens and some lemon wedges to serve (sides not included in macro count).
