    Easy Slow Cooker Pork Rice Bowls

    Makes 4 bowls

    Recipe by Christine Byrne

    For this recipe, you'll need one-third of the roasted peppers and one-third of the slow-cooker pork that you made ahead of time.

    INGREDIENTS

    1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided

    2 cups cooked jasmine rice

    ⅔ cup sliced roasted bell peppers, coarsely chopped

    1 teaspoon hot sauce

    2 teaspoons unseasoned rice vinegar

    12 ounces (about 1½ cups) shredded slow-cooker pork

    1 small heart of romaine, shredded

    1 medium, ripe avocado, chopped

    ¾ cup raw corn kernels

    2 medium beefsteak tomatoes, cored and coarsely chopped

    4 ounces yellow cheddar cheese, grated

    ¼ cup cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped

    Salsa, to serve

    PREPARATION

    Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Add the jasmine rice, bell peppers, hot sauce, and rice vinegar. Cook, stirring often, just until the rice is heated through, about 2 minutes. Divide the rice among four serving bowls.

    Wipe out the saucepan, then heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the pork and cook, stirring often, just until the pork is heated through, about 2 minutes.

    Top each rice bowl with equal amounts of pork, then romaine, avocado, corn, tomato, cheddar, and cilantro, and serve.
