Submitted by: HUSKERSALAD

Introduction

Turn leftover pork into a delicious weeknight meal Turn leftover pork into a delicious weeknight meal
Number of Servings: 3

Ingredients

    1/2 to 3/4 lb country style pork ribs or pork shoulder cooked in a slowcooker over sliced onions until tender and shredded, visible fat removed. (I use half for this and half for BBQ pork sandwiches)
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 onion diced
    1 yellow pepper sliced into strips and then into thirds
    1/2 lb sliced mushrooms
    14 oz can San Marzano style tomatoes and juices
    1/2 cup red wine
    1/2 tsp ground black pepper
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 tsp marjoram
    1/2 tsp oregano
    1/2 tsp crushed rosemary
    1/2 tsp thyme
    1 can low sodium garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
    2 tbsp capers, drained and rinsed (optional)

Tips

This is meant to be low in simple carbohydrates, not necessarily low fat.


Directions

Heat olive oil in deep sautee/everyday pan.
Add onion, yellow pepper and mushrooms, cook until mushrooms are browned a bit, adding the juices from the tomatoes if the mushrooms absorb too much of the oil.
Add the pepper and herbs. Stirring until incorporated.
Deglaze the pan with the red wine, keeping the vegetables in.
Crush the tomatoes in hand over the pan, adding the pieces as they fall.
Add the shredded pork and garbanzo beans, continue cooking until thoroughly heated through and the beans have a texture that you like.
Turn off the heat. Add capers, if desired.
