Ingredients

  • For the pork:
  • 1 lb. pork I used pork chops
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • Salt to taste
  • For the squash:
  • 1 acorn squash seeds removed
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 tbsp fresh sage
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Place all pork ingredients into the slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours or until pork is cooked through.
  • Once pork has been cooking for 3 hours, begin cooking the squash.
  • Preheat oven to 400°, slice the squash, remove all of the seeds and then continue slicing the squash into pieces.
  • Place squash in a large bowl and pour melted butter and sage overtop; stir to combine.
  • Put squash on a baking sheet (you may need 2 baking sheets), making sure none of the squash is touching.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, flipping the squash after about 12 minutes. You'll know the squash is cooked once it's soft when you bite into it.
  • Once cooked, put the squash on a plate, pour pork overtop and grate some cheese over the entire dish (this is optional, but gruyere or parmesan is recommended!).
  • Enjoy!
