We are so excited to share this super easy slow cooker recipe with you today! We love using our slow cooker when work is especially crazy. Every little bit of time saved is a really big help. When it’s cold outside (it’s been raining so much here in LA! It’s been nuts!) we crave hearty dishes. We love this Shredded Pork Coconut Curry because it’s super filling and makes great leftovers. We used the Smithfield Sweet & Smoky Marinated Fresh Pork Roast in this recipe because it’s conveniently pre-seasoned, yummy, and made from 100% fresh pork with no artificial ingredients. It really helps cut the time down on the prep for this recipe.

    We often have Hawaiian style kalua pork in the freezer. We make a lot and portion it out. If we were to try this recipe with the kalua pork, how much would we use?

    Looks wonderful, but I did a knee jerk when I saw Smithfield in the ingredients. It’s one of the massive pig farms where the pigs are not ethically raised. I wouldn’t support them. You provide wonderful, healthy recipes. I’ve always liked that you don’t tell us to open a bottle of something and dump it in, but it’s always home made. But this is using a meat already seasoned, which means a lot of chemicals. I plan on making this, but seasoning my own pork that I buy from a local farm or the Amish market.
