  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell peppers into 1" dice.

    Remove any discolored outer leaves from bok choy and trim ends. Cut stems into 1/4" slices and coarsely chop leaves.

    Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate.

    Combine ground pork, panko, and onion salt in a mixing bowl. Divide pork mixture into 12 evenly-sized meatballs, about the size of golf balls.

  2. 2

    Start the Meal

    Place slow cooker liner in slow cooker, if desired. Fold top edges in before putting on lid.

    Combine orange sauce, red bell peppers, pineapple, white portions of green onions, 1/2 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a clean slow cooker.

    Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover and cook, 3 1/2 hours.

  3. 3

    Add Bok Choy and Make Rice

    After 3 1/2 hours, combine cornstarch and 3 Tbsp. water in another mixing bowl.

    Stir cornstarch-water mixture and bok choy into slow cooker. Cover, and cook until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 30 minutes.

    While meal cooks, bring a small pot with rice and 3 cups water to a boil.

    Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
