About the Recipe
Slow cookers are one of the best tools for simplifying dinner.
They make life so easy. All you do is throw everything in the slow cooker and then you have a meal ready in a few hours.
This Slow Cooker Garlic Ginger Shredded Pork recipe is no exception to the whole easy meal - thanks to the slow cooker!
It's slightly sweet thanks to the honey and tomato paste.
But the garlic and ginger give it a savory aspect that complements the sweet flavors so well.
If you're not a huge ginger fan, don't worry. This isn't intensely ginger-flavored.
At first, I was disappointed that there wasn't more ginger flavor.
But after my second bite, I didn't care because it was sweet and savory and wonderful.
Another great aspect of this recipe is that leftovers are delicious for a few days after preparation, and leftovers also freeze well for the future.
