Asian Style Pulled Pork

Recently I was trying to explain to my friend how easy it was to cook pork in a crock pot.  After chatting about different ways to prepare pork, it made me realize I hadn’t actually cooked pork in a crock pot in quite a while.  For this recipe, I found a 2 lb. pork loin roast on sale at our grocery store for about $6 and decided to try an Asian-style pulled pork with it.  I served it with a broccoli slaw.  Delicious!

Directions: 

Slice up one onion and 3 cloves garlic and put them in the bottom of your crock pot.  I combined 1/4 cup of sesame teriyaki sauce with 1/4 cup ginger soy sauce and a splash or two of water.  (You could probably use any teriyaki or soy type sauce you have in the house as long as it equaled about 1/2 cup or so.)  I added in a little extra ground ginger, 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, and  1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar, stirred it well, and poured it over the roast.  Taste the sauce before you pour it!  Add flavor according to your own taste. 

I cooked the pork loin on low for about 5 or 6 hours.  At the end of that time, I removed the loin from the crock pot and shredded it with two forks.  I ladled out about 2 ladles of sauce and added 2 diced scallions and a little more teriyaki sauce and then poured that over the shredded pork until the pork was well covered with the sauce.  Very easy and a little bit of a different way to make pulled pork!
