Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This sounds really delicious. I am not a big fan of ginger, but in the right combination it is really good. I like that the dish uses the spices in a marinade before cooking. I think that helps get the flavor into the meat a little more than just baking or roasting the pork with spices added in at that time. Great idea for those nights when you don't want the same old dish.

Pretty good. different

Could you cook this in the oven or in a slow cooker?

Hi ssuch! Great question! Yes! You can cook this dish in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 -30 minutes or desired done-ness. It could also be cooked in a slow cooker, but we have not tested this just yet, so monitor your cook time if you choose to utilize a slow cooker in the meantime. Whichever way you decide to cook it, we'd love to hear your feedback!
