      Directions

      For the pork: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

      Place the pork, coconut milk, chili paste, ginger, salt, lime leaves, garlic and lemongrass in a large Dutch oven. Pour in 1 cup water and cover tightly. Bake until fork tender, about 4 hours. Shred the meat.

      For the slaw: Mix the cabbage, mayo, agave and mirin together just prior to serving to ensure crispness.

      For the pico de gallo: Mix the tomatoes, jalapenos and onions together.

      Warm the corn tortillas on skillet and place approximately 3 tablespoons of shredded pork on top. Top with some slaw, pico de gallo and cilantro.
