2 Pounds Boneless Pork Shoulder Ribs

1 T Olive Oil

1 T Montreal Steak Grill Mate (McCormick)

1/4 C Slivered Onion

3 Whole Cloves Garlic

1/4 C Fresh Cilantro

1 t Cinnamon

1 t Corriander

1 t Cumin

1/2 t Alspice

1/3 C lime juice (Fresh keylime is best)

1/4 C Agave Nectar (raw or amber)

1 15 oz Can of Diced Tomatoes with Garlic and Onions


In a measuring cup, whisk lime juice with Agave nectar and set aside.

Coat large skillet with olive oil and place raw pork in to sear over medium heat. Sprinkle with Montreal Seasoning as you turn to brown each side.

While the meat is searing, place all your raw veggies and spices into 4 qt crock pot. Place each piece of meat ontop on first layer in crock pot. Be sure to leave space between each piece.

Pour undrained can of tomatoes and lime juice mixture over meat, cover and turn on high for 2 hours.

Reduce your heat to low and cook for another 2-4 hours until prok falls apart and maks a stew like soup.

This is fantastic on rice with black beans or just in a bowl with some whole grain dipping bread.

You can reduce the calories and carbs by using stevia or xylitol in lieu of the Agave Nectar. If you use stevia, only one packet should be required. None of these should spike your sugars.
