Slow Cooker Pork Quinoa cabbage bowl

I've used pork rib tips before and I love them because they are cheap and delicious. You may have to ask for the rib tips. Make sure they are from pastured animals (better nutrition).

Since you use a slow cooker this is an easy and hearty meal to prepare. Old slow cookers (1980s or early 1990s) will cook slower than mine, so allow yourself plenty of time (up to 8 hours?) for older slow cookers to finish cooking the meat.

Cut pork rib tips if needed to fit a couple slabs in the slow cooker. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Don't add any liquid- the pork liquids will be fine.  Cover and cook for 5-6 hours on low until the meat falls off the bone. (I use a newer model slow cooker, older slow cookers may take longer)

Using a couple forks, separate the meat from cartilage/bone. Set meat aside, discard cartilage/bone.

Cook up some quinoa in a rice cooker.
