Banh Mi Sliders

I found this at diets in review. Poster had just spent a weekend getaway in Portland, Oregon and was inspired to create this after going to Portland Farmers's Market and taking a pole dancing class. Got a bang out of that! She claims that it has a lower calorie level. Could prep meat day before and assemble rest day of serving.

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

FOR CROCKPOT

2
bay leaves
1 tsp
coriander
1 tsp
thyme
1 tsp
dried basil
1 tsp
turmeric
1 tsp
garlic, minced
2 lb
pork tenderloin
2
apples, chopped
2
inches ginger root, divided
16 oz
low sodium chicken broth

VEGETABLE TOPPING

1
large carrot
1
cucumber
1
small bunch cilantro, chopped
1
serrano pepper, minced
1/2
lime, juiced

APPLE CIDER REDUCTION

1 1/2 c
apple cider
1/4 c
honey

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put bay leaves into crockpot. Combine rest of spices and thoroughly rub on pork tenderloin. Place in crock pot with chopped apples and a few pieces of ginger root (later need 1 to 2 teaspoons of ginger for vegetable topping) and pour in broth. Set to high and cook 3-4 hours.
2
Prepare the vegetable topping by chopping carrot and cucumber julienne style (like long, thin matchsticks). Zest or grate the remaining ginger root; you’ll want about 1-2 teaspoons. Roughly chop cilantro and mince serrano pepper (remove the seeds before chopping to remove heat but keep the flavor). This can be done a few hours in advance and sealed in an air-tight container or baggy and refrigerated.
3
Just before serving, prepare the apple cider reduction. Over high heat pour cider into pot on stove top. Stir frequently. When cider has mostly reduced, after 8-10 minutes, reduce heat slightly and add honey. Stir until a thick syrup has formed (keep warm until ready to use).
4
Remove pork from the crock pot. It should be tender and juicy. Shred the meat by hand or using two forks.
5
Spread each slider bun with apple cider reduction. Evenly divide meat and vegetables across buns.
