BBQ Pork Bowls

I just ate this meal and am in HEAVEN!! It is so flavorful and delicious. I saw the post initially from Ashton @thatmacromomlife, and she got the recipes from @lillielovesmacros. I changed a few things in mine, but this is her original recipe. To see her full recipe, it is on her story highlights.

I also saved my step by step instructions on this meal in my story highlights @cleanmondaymeals for all of you to see how simple it is! Make this ASAP; you won’t regret it!! 😍🙌🏻

BBQ Pork Bowls 

Ingredients for the Pork:
* 2 lb pork tenderloin (I use the kind that’s only 2.5 fat for 4 oz. I get mine from Costco * 2 Tbs @stubbsbbqsauce * 1/2 cup water
* 1 whole chopped onion (280 g)
* 8 cloves garlic (I use the frozen Dorot cubes I get at TJ- LOVE these)
* 1 tbs brown sugar
* 2 tsp each: chili powder, dry mustard, onion powder, kosher salt
* 1 tsp each cumin, paprika, cayenne, and pepper
For the Cilantro Lime Apple Slaw
* 1 12-oz bag of coleslaw mix
* 1/4 cup chopped apple
* 1 tbs white wine vinegar
* 2 tbsp light mayo
* 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1/8 tsp pepper
* 1 tsp honey

Instructions for the Pork:
1. Cut pork into 4-inch chunks and season with seasoned salt. Sear on all sides.
2. Put bbq sauce, water, pork, onion, garlic, and all spices in the instant pot, or you can use a slow cooker. (Don’t stress about the spices, use what you have and skip what you don’t)
3. Set your instant pot to manual and 45 minutes. Allow for 10-15 minute natural release, then open the vent.  Open the lid when it releases easily.
4. I like to pull out the chunks and shred them in a shallow dish for ease. Then pour as much of the juices over it as seems good. Toss in juices.
For Slow Cooker
1. Set to high for 6 hours or low for 8-10.
2. When done, shred with two forks and toss in juices
For the Cilantro Lime Apple Slaw
1. Mix first six ingredients together for dressing.
2. Toss with remaining ingredients. It gets better as it sits for a little bit.
