Paleo Green Chili Pork with Coriander Lime Cauliflower Rice Recipe

Ingredients

Green Chili Pork Ingredients
• 907 g of pork shoulder or pork butt
• 1/2 onion, chopped
• 2 cans (113g size) of green chilis, or use fresh chilis if available
• Juice of 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
• 1/2 cup chicken broth
• 1 tbs chili powder
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• 1 tsp salt
• 1 tsp pepper
• 1 tsp cumin
• 1/2 tsp cayenne

Coriander Lime Rice (Cauliflower)
• 1 head of cauliflower – “riced”
• 1/4 cup broth (from the crockpot)
• 1/2 tsp garlic powder
• 2 limes, plus zest
• 1/4 cup chopped coriander – leaves only
• Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
1. Set slow-cooker to low
2. Chop onion and add to slow-cooker
3. Pour in 1/2 cup of chicken broth
4. Next combine all of the pork spices in a small bowl
5. Use the spices as a rub and coat the pork roast completely on all sides
6. Juice the 2 limes, and add to slow-cooker
7. Add your pork roast to the slow-cooker
8. Pour the two cans of chilies over the roast
9. Cook for 6-8 hrs. Slow-cooker temperatures vary. Mine does fine on low, but you may need to adjust yours depending on your cooker/crockpot
10. Note: it will look like there isn’t much liquid in the pot. That’s OK. As the roast cooks it will add its own juices to the liquid. You don’t want to dilute the lime flavor by adding too much chicken broth.
11. Once the pork is done, start the cauliflower rice
12. Chop up a head of cauliflower and place in a food processor
13. Pulse it until it turns into particles resembling rice – this should happen pretty quickly
14. Turn on a cooktop burner to medium to medium-high heat
15. In a medium-sized pan add the cauliflower “rice”
16. Get some of the yummy broth from the slow-cooker – about 1/4 cup – and add to rice pan
17. Add 1/2 tsp of garlic powder
18. The cauliflower contains a lot of moisture – you’ll notice it will start to steam in the pot
19. Just watch it and stir occasionally as it cooks. Continue cooking for 10-12 minutes
20. Taste the cauliflower rice for consistency
21. Once the rice is done, stir in the juice and zest of 2 limes, add coriander, and salt and pepper to taste
22. Serve rice to the side or as a bed for the pork
23. Add vegetables such as grilled peppers if you like
24. Yummm!
