Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Pork Bowls start with pork that goes into the slow cooker without needing to be browned, and it can cook for 10 hours while you’re at work!
I think the transition to a back-to-school schedule is hard for every parent, but for parents who go off to work each day, getting the kids off to school and planning dinner makes mornings a lot more challenging. But this easy recipe for Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Pork Bowls from Yankee Kitchen Ninja sounds perfect to throw in the slow cook on a school morning. You simply rub the pork with sugar and salt, pour over the sauce, and it can cook unattended the whole day. At dinner time just make quinoa, cut up some garnishes, and you’re ready to eat!
Use rice for the bowl if quinoa is not a hit at your house, or Julianne says you could also turn the sweet and spicy pork into sliders, sandwiches, or lettuce wraps. And if you have kids who aren’t into spicy, use less chili paste. I bet without much trouble you can easily adapt this easy slow cooker pork recipe into something your family will devour!
