A little sweet and a little spicy – these slow cooker sweet chili soy shredded pork wraps are simple and delicious family favorite meal! Use in burritos or lettuce wraps, or as a salad topping.
I love short ribs – they are the perfect pork cut to toss in a slow cooker, set, and come back to a delicious meal just waiting to be added to burritos, wraps, and salads.
It’s my ultimate dinner cheat – I LOVE making shredded pork!
Plus, it helps me have tons of quick and easy meals on hand for leftovers, since there are so many ways you can repurpose shredded pork (wraps, tacos, burritos, salads, nachos, sandwiches, casseroles, pastas…) – you can see why it’s my favorite, especially this year as I am traveling almost nonstop (want to travel as much as I do, totally FREE?? Get my tips here), and my husband is busy busy busy with the election season.
We’re constantly being pulled in a million different directions, and I’ll admit that makes me feel crazy when I need to be preparing dinner so we can have a nice, smooth night when everyone is home from school and work.
This meal is seriously so easy – ad if you have a programmable slow cooker, you can set it while you’re out of the house and return to a delicious meal everyone will love!
While you can cook this meal without browning the ribs first (if you’re super busy you could just chuck all the ingredients in the slow cooker and be on your way), I really suggest browning them for extra flavor. It only takes a few minutes and really makes a big difference!
Browning the meat also helps seal in some of the juices so it doesn’t dry out as we cook it.
If you’re looking for THE BEST pan to brown meat in, you need this DeBuyer Mineral Iron Pan. I am OBSESSED with it – it is naturally nonstick and heats evenly like a cast iron – but with an ultra smooth surface. It is amazing!!
(and don’t forget to buy a super cool chainmail to clean it with- I love how easy it makes cleanup!)
I love this shredded pork so much, and it is SO easy to make! I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does.
