My husband took a Braised Meat recipe and changed it to make this delicious dish, with just a touch of heat! I've been using a Crock Pot BBQ Pit type of slow cooker, which is basically a crock pot with a meat rack in it. However, leave the meat rack out for this one! You will want the meat to soak up all those delicious spices & juices!
Put Coconut Oil in a container and microwave for a few seconds to melt. (Coconut Oil melts at a very low temperature so it will only take 5 to 10 seconds)
Massage pork with some of the coconut oil
In a fry pan, add the rest of the coconut oil and fry meat for 4 minutes on each side. Remove meat and place into the slow cooker, fat side up.
In the same fry pan, add the Braising Stock ingredients in with the remaining oil, and simmer for a few minutes.
Then add the remainder of ingredients & warm for 1 or 2 minutes. Pour over the meat in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours (or 8-10 hours on low), basting 2 or 3 times during cooking. (Sans crock pot, you could also cook this in a roasting pan in a 325-350 oven for the same amount of time.)
