    I made this tonight and instead of putting it in flour tortillas, we did lettuce wraps. Sooooooooooo good!!

    When freezing this meal would I cook it first and then freeze it?

      No – I would assemble the ingredients then place in a freezer bag. Then you can defrost before putting in the slow cooker.

    These came out fantastic, topped w/broccoli slaw. We had lots of leftovers, so I turned lunch the next day into quesadilla’s with these!

    Why were some of these ingredients not on the shopping list? ( I.e. sesame oil, red wine vinegar and ginger) I noticed in the chicken recipes call for chicken broth or bullion cubes, which weren’t on the list also. I don’t want to sound ungrateful. I am new to your site and my husband and I are trying the crockpot meals this month. Thank you for your time that you have put into this, it’s a great resource.

      Nicole – there is a separate pantry list in the printable pack. That pantry list is a list of items that Aldi does not sell and/or items that most people have in their pantry.

    What type of ‘greens’ do you use with this recipe? I don’t see them listed in the ingredients but do see one person say they used broccoli slaw? Is it more a personal taste or is their a certain type of greens that make this dish just right? :-)

    I was wondering what you added to the cabbage and carrot mixture if anything???
    Thank you.

      You top the pork with it – it is delish!

    One of the ingredients listed is:
    1 tablespoon seasoned rice wine vinegar
    What does that even mean? Thanks
