Simple & Delicious Citrus Pork with a Thai Slaw! (Paleo, Keto & AIP)
This has been my favorite salad dressing for years! It acts both as a delicious marinade and salad dressing. If you wish to make the pork AND the salad you’ll need to double the citrus dressing/ marinade recipe and use about half for each! This makes for an EASY, HEALTHY and happy meal that works for a variety of diets and allergies. Its naturally Gluten and Dairy Free, Paleo, Keto (Sugar Free) and Autoimmune Paleo Friendly. We eat this on repeat..it makes healthy enjoyable!
Yield: serves 2-3
2 tsp fresh minced ginger
2 tbsp of Apple Cider vinegar or Rice Vinegar
4 tbsp Oil (Grapeseed, Macadamia oil, Avocado Oil or MCT oil)
1 tbsp of Sesame Oil
3 tbsp Honey or 2 ½ packs of Powdered Stevia (2.5 grams)
1 tbsp of Lime or Lemon Juice
¼ tsp of salt (or more to taste)
To make the thai salad:
Whisk together the dressing ingredients. Add to a bowl 1 - 12 oz bag of coleslaw to a bowl. Add 1 cup chopped onion (red or white), 1 cup of freshly chopped cilantro and 1 cup of roasted/salted cashews. Toss together.
To make the citrus pork:
Make the marinade. Place 2 (or 3) pork chops into a bag or tupperware container and douse them with the marinade. Shape up so they are well coated. Place in the fridge for minimum or 1 hour or up to 24 hours (the longer they sit in the marinade the better the flavor will be). Once finished marinating heat up a frying pan to high and place the pork chops in the pan cooking them 2-3 minutes each side until there is no pink left (internally).
