Soy braised pork and sauteed bok choy

Soy braised pork in the slow cooker is one of my favorite slow cooker meals.  Enjoy the pork ladled over a bowl of rice.  Mmm.  I love asian food.

I picked up some "pork for stew" from the super market, which are end pieces of pork sold cheaply.  You can also use shoulder pork blades cut into chunks for this dish as well.

Added to the slow cooker: 3 pounds of cubed pork, soy sauce, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, sliced ginger, some salt and pepper.  I also added in some dried seaweed to add in some additional flavor.  Slow cook on Low for 8-9 hours.

 It comes out delicious and perfect every time.

Don't forget to have some vegetables with your meal everyday.
To have some quick Asian veggies to go with your Asian pork, cut up and wash up some small bok choy.  Separate the stems from the leaves because stems take longer to cook.
heat up a skillet, add in olive oil and minced garlic.  Add the stems in and saute until its somewhat tender.  Add in the bok choy leaves and a sprinkle of kosher salt until wilted.
