I’m sure regular Autoimmune Wellness recipe fans know by now that most of my recipes come from two places: either the idea happens rather accidentally as I’m working on something else, or I have some ingredients hanging around that I need to use up.

I’m definitely a writer and recipe developer who needs the inspirational muses to sing before I create. This recipe is, of course, no exception. I had a pork roast that I wanted to make during a batch cooking session to serve as my and my husband’s lunches for the coming work week. I also had the last of a bottle of fish sauce, and some limes about to go bad… and I really wanted something new, ’cause I was sick of my typical pork roast recipes. What I came up with is this lovely, slightly Asian flavored pork roast. I hope you’ll like it too!

Prep time

Total time
Serves: 4
  1. In a large heavy-bottom skillet, salt pork and sear until the outside starts to darken. Place the pork in a slow cooker.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together oil, maple, fish sauce, coconut aminos, lime juice, garlic, and ginger. Pour mixture over pork. Cook 6 hours on low or 4 hours on high. When pork is finished remove to a cutting board to rest.
  3. Pour juices from slow cooker insert into a medium saucepan. Cook the sauce over medium high heat, reducing by about a ⅓. Dissolve arrowroot in water, remove sauce from heat and quickly stir in arrowroot, so sauce thickens.
  4. Slice roast thin and pour sauce over it. Serve with lime wedges and cilantro.
