Crock Pot Asian Pork with Mushrooms

Browsing one of my favorite healthy cooking websites, Skinnytaste, I found this recipe for Crock Pot Asian Pork with Mushrooms, and I thought my boss would likely enjoy it.  I don’t eat meat, but the picture of this Asian pork dish looked delightful.  It’s a plus that it’s super low calorie, and would probably be really good over rice, noodles, or just by itself.

The only thing I changed up a bit was the meat. I couldn’t find a huge pork roast so I just used a pork loin and shred that up. I also just put everything in the crock pot from the beginning. It often seems unnecessary to pre-cook the meat since it will cook in the crock all day…
