Pork & Butternut Crockpot Stew {AIP/Paleo}

I love the taste of Butternut Squash, and love to cook with it, it has such a creamy texture and cooks so well in a pressure cooker or crock pot.  The combination of Pork, Coconut Milk and Butternut Squash is a Fall Favorite for me, and a very heart warm and nutritious choice as the nights draw in, and the frost hits the ground overnight!

Butternut squash delivers an ample dose of dietary fiber & provides significant amounts of potassium, important for bone health, and vitamin B6, essential for the proper functioning of both the nervous and immune systems.  It also boasts very high levels of beta-carotene (which your body automatically converts to vitamin A), identified as a deterrent against breast cancer as well as a supporter of healthy lung development in fetuses and newborns. What’s more, with only a 1-cup serving, you get nearly half the recommended daily dose of antioxidant-rich vitamin C. It also is known for its anti-inflammatory effects because of its high antioxidant content, this is a super food for those like me who have Rheumatoid Arthritis and other inflammatory diseases!

Coconuts are highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous. Unlike cow’s milk, coconut milk is dairy free so can be used as a milk substitute.

Instructions
  1. Peel and cube The Butternut Squash (See this Video to learn how https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kbecyb7TgDE)
  2. Cube the Pork Loin into 1" pieces
  3. Peel & Slice the Onion then cut in half, then start at one of the flat ends (with onion half lying flat on the cutting board) and slice horizontally to create half moon-shaped pieces.
  4. Place all ingredients into Crockpot, and mix and coat all ingredients in the Coconut Milk.
  5. Set Timer on Medium for 4 hours, this will ensure the pork stays in the 1" pieces and doesn't start to break down. I have left this dish on warm for an additional 4 hours, and it has been absolutely fine :) Often serve with steamed broccoli on the side
