This is my first recipe post now that I have branched out The In Between Girls to also include healthy recipes. Just to warn you, I eyeball and I substitute often. Food can be whatever you want it to be, so don’t feel pressured to follow a recipe. Think of it more as a guide.
I wanted to introduce you to my latest quick and healthy recipe: Poached egg on pulled pork shoulder, a bed of spinach a top of whole grain toast.
Originally, I had made these carnitas because I was planning on making tacos. But that night I had forgotten I left the slow cooker on and went out to eat after work. The house smelled amazing with disappointment as I had spent $30 on dinner when I could’ve had the carnitas that had been slow cooking for the past 10 hours.
I heated the carnitas up in a pan and laid them on top of the spinach and toast, but I felt something was missing. It needed a sauce. It needed an egg! The previous night I had spontaneously decided I wanted to try poaching an egg because I was watching Julie and Julia. Four eggs later, and I had finally figured out when to take it out of the water.

You can follow this slow cooker carnitas recipe, which I adhered to loosely. I opted to keep it simple with two cups of chicken stock to keep it moist.
