Time for one of my FAVE recipes! I L-O-V-E my crock pot! I cant use it enough! I mean, whats better than making dinner at breakfast and its all done when your ready to eat?

Well this meal is no exception! I know I always have a pork roast in my deep freeze just waiting to be made into something yummo! And Chinese is my downfall! But with this recipe, it doesn't have to be! Its way better for you then going to the local take out, and your hips will surly thank you! :)
Moo Shu Pork
Grocery List:
One 2-lb boneless pork loin roast, fat trimmed, quartered lengthwise
1 cup hoisin sauce
1 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
6 cups shredded Napa cabbage
11⁄2 cups bagged shredded carrots

3 Tbsp rice-wine vinegar
11⁄2 Tbsp sugar
20 flour tortillas, warmed (or you can use wheat!)
How to do it:
1. Put pork, 1⁄3 cup hoisin sauce and the ginger in a 31⁄2-qt or larger slow-cooker.
