Slow Cooker Ground Pork with Cauliflower Fried Rice

Louise Hendon | April 6

This meaty sauce is extra tasty due to all the cooking in the crock-pot that happens for hours.

But while it’s cooking away, you can have a rest. Safe in the knowledge that dinner will be on the table on time.

And the best part is you can make a large batch of this meaty sauce, pack it into small containers and freeze. Then just defrost and enjoy anytime (it’s great for a fast lunch).

To serve with this meaty sauce, I suggest a cauliflower fried rice – it’ll soak up the flavors from the sauce really well as well as provide you with extra fiber and nutrition.

The result will amaze you because the meat will get extra-tender, the tomatoes will add a delicious flavor and will increase that sauce’s taste… Yum!

If you don’t have bone broth, note that you can use any other kind of broth (chicken, beef) or you can simply add plain water.
