General Tso's Slow Cooker Pork
Ah....the crockpot. We came back from violin camp...and I really wanted to grill something...but I knew that wasn't going to work (see below):
state swim meet+violin camp+lifeguarding class=Eleanor tired
Bangkok to home=Paul tired
sleeping in a dorm bed+starting full time work+ driving to camp and home from violin camp (X2)=Karen tired
Yep, the grilling thing wasn't going to happen...and I knew that early in the day, so I put this together in the crockpot in the morning. Turns out it was a great idea because we all need a grab and be done kind of dinner. I"m glad that I threw it in and had this for a Saturday night dinner since that gave me one more weekend day to get to enjoy the summer evening and grill. I was hungry while Paul was busy catching up on some home projects and Eleanor was napping...so crockpot worked well. I was a bit worried that it would be too salty, but it was fine. Better than fine really...nice combination of vinegar, and cilantro and sweetness, and saltiness.
